Anderson Cooper

CNN journalist Anderson Cooper, 43, was attacked on Wednesday by a group of demonstrators in Egypt.

While reporting from Cairo Cooper says he and his production crew, were set upon by demonstrators loyal to embattled president Hosni Mubarak.

According to a CNN report:

“The attackers pushed and shoved the CNN crew and punched them in the head, he said, but no one was seriously hurt.”

One of his colleagues, 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.”
