Anderson Cooper And CNN Crew Attacked By Pro-Mubarak Mob In Egypt

CNN’s Anderson Cooper has been attacked while reporting for the network in Egypt. The anchor, who’s been reporting nearly nonstop since the weekend, described the attack to viewers this morning shortly after a Twitter report on the incident from CNN’s Steve Brusk, who said Cooper had been “punched 10 times in the head as pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover demonstration.”

Cooper, resuming his live coverage, looked fine and unshaken.

Brusk’s tweet:

Here is Cooper’s report on the incident from CNN below:
