Lily Sussman is back from Egypt with the laptop that got "blown up" at the Israeli border
Three weeks ago, an American student working in Cairo was questioned for two hours at the Israeli border before security officials confiscated her Apple (AAPL) MacBook, called in a sapper, and shot it full of holes.
Before she flew home for the holidays, she gave The Daily News Egypt the video interview posted below the fold.
UPDATE: By luck or careful aim, Sussman's hard drive emerged unscathed. "I've managed to recover all the data!" she writes. "Yayy...It's a survivor. I have yet to hear back from the man handling my case about when and what I will be compensated."
