Anderson super cooper 150x200 Anderson Cooper Attacked in Egypt

CNN reported today that “360″ host Anderson Cooper was punched numerous times in the head as a pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover the demonstration in Cairo, Egypt.


“Cooper then escaped to the roof of a nearby building, where he said on air that he and his crew were trying to get to a neutral zone between protestors and pro-Mubarak supporters when they “were set upon by pro-Mubarak supporters punching us in the head. The crowd kept growing, kept throwing punches, kicks…suddenly a young man would look at you and punch you in the face.””

Cooper told the Live CNN Blog that the attackers “pushed and shoved the CNN crew and punched them in the head… but no one was seriously hurt.”
