CNN anchor Anderson Cooper was attacked by a mob of President Hosni Mubarak’s supporters in Cairo, Egypt earlier today, Wednesday (February 2). According to CNN producer Steve Brusk, Anderson was “punched 10 times in the head as pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover demonstration.”
The 43 year-old journalist still had the time to cover all the events for CNN’s live blog, describing the attack and their escape to a roof of a nearby building. Anderson claims the mob pushed, shoved and punched the CNN crew in the head, but, fortunately, no one was seriously hurt.
In Egypt, the situation is starting to get out of control as violent confronts between protesters against President Hosni Mubarak, who has been in power for more than 30 years, and pro-Mubarak supporters.
