CNN anchor Anderson Cooper and his crew were attacked by pro-Mubarak supporters in Cairo on Wednesday, according to news reports. Cooper was hit in the head numerous times.
Cooper went on the air soon after the attack and appeared unhurt. “The crowd set upon us,” Anderson explained and added he and his crew were “kicked and punched pretty well … before the mob forced us to seek safety.”
The incident came as pro-Mubarak supporters attacked protesters  calling for the Egyptian president to resign and leave the country. Speaking on “American Morning” after the attack, Cooper said that he and his crew had been trying to go to a neutral zone between the two groups.
On Tuesday, Human Rights Watch  confirmed several cases of undercover police loyal to Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s regime committing acts of violence and looting.
