Feb 2 - Anderson Cooper Attacked By Mob In Egypt
 

 

The anchor was "punched 10 times in the head," CNN producer Steve Brusk Tweeted.

Anderson Cooper was attacked in Egypt Wednesday.

CNN producer Steve Brusk Tweeted, "Anderson said he was punched 10 times in the head as pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover demonstration."

Cooper then escaped to the roof of a nearby building, where he said on air: "We were in a crowd and we were just set upon."

Cooper told CNN's live blog that the attackers "pushed and shoved the CNN crew and punched them in the head... but no one was seriously hurt."

Added Brusk on Twitter, "Live images now of crowds on opposite side of trucks throwing rocks. A CNN reporter called earlier scene snowball f!ght with rocks."

CNN's Ben Wedeman told the blog that "he overheard a panicked army officer say the situation was out of control and there was nothing the army could do to restore order."

Copper landed in the country Sunday night to cover the protests againt President Hosni Mubarak, who has been in power for 30 years.

"It's a fast-changing situation," he told The Huffington Post Monday. "It feels like it changes every few hours."

On Monday, Christiane Amanpour called The Hollywood Reporter from Cairo, where she had been reporting since Saturday.

"We had no idea what to expect,” she said. “But it is always more scary from the outside than it is from the inside.”

The journey from the Cairo International Airport to her hotel took over an hour because "every 50 to 100 yards our car was stopped and there were people with machetes, meat cleavers, swords, rifles, metal bars,” she said. “Once they saw [who we were], they waved us through. I would describe the journey as tense but friendly.”

Anderson Cooper Speaks Out on Egypt Attack: 'It Was Pandemonium'

Anderson Cooper spoke out on CNN's American Morning about getting attacked by a pro-Mubarak mob in Egypt Wednesday.

"The crowd kept growing and throwing more punches and kicks and trying to grab us," said Cooper, who was punched 10 times in the head, according to his producer.

"It was pandemonium," he went on. "There was no control to it. Suddenly, a young man would look at you, and then punch you right in the face. The instinct is to try to punch or push back, but you really can't in a situation like that. That inflames the crowd even more. All we could do was walk as quickly as possible and stay together and seek a safe location."

Cooper broadcast from a roof near Tahrir Square, where the violent demonstrations between protestors and Mubarak supporters raged on. According to CNN's live blog, several gasoline bombs went off and gunfire was heard.

Cooper described how he and his crew got into the situation in the first place.

"We were trying to make our way to the no man land," he said, referring to a neutral location between the opposing groups. "We never made it that far. We were set upon by pro-Muburak supporters punching us in the face."

He said one attacker "tried to break his [cameraman's] camera… they didn't want any pictures taken. Frankly, we weren't even taking pictures with the big camera. I was using a Flip camera, which they didn't notice."

"But the big camera - they were trying to grab it. We immediately started to turn around because we realized the situation would get very bad very quickly."

He also posted on Twitter: "Got roughed up by thugs in pro-mubarak crowd..punched and kicked repeatedly. Had to escape. Safe now."

That sucks.
But its kind of expected, when you go somewhere with a lot of civil unrest and where there is frustration with America.
