NEW YORK (AP) — CBS News’ Lara Logan is back at work at “60 Minutes” more than six months after being ordered to take a leave of absence for her role in a story on the Benghazi raid.

CBS News spokeswoman Sonya McNair said Wednesday that Logan is back. She had no details on when the correspondent resumed work and what stories she is working on.

Logan was criticized for basing an October report on the Benghazi raid on the testimony of a security contractor and supposed eyewitness to the 2012 raid at the U.S. mission in Libya. That contractor’s story could not be verified.

An internal CBS report also said that Logan should not have done the story in the first place after making public comments about the American effort against al-Qaida.
