    Anderson Cooper was attacked in Egypt Wednesday.

    CNN producer 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."

    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 CNN's live blog that the attackers "pushed and shoved the CNN crew and punched them in the head... but no one was seriously hurt."Added Brusk on Twitter, "Live images now of crowds on opposite side of trucks throwing rocks. A CNN reporter called earlier scene snowball fight with rocks."

    CNN's Ben Wedeman told the blog that "he overheard a panicked army officer say the situation was out of control and there was nothing the army could do to restore order."Cooper landed in the country Sunday night to cover the protests againt President Hosni Mubarak, who has been in power for 30 years.

    Why is he sure they were pro - mubarak? They could just as easily be aware of his sexuality and have been attacking him because hes' ghey. Remember - the pro-democracy people there in egypt agree with stoning gheys.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    no doubt, he keeps it close to his vest and doesn't flaunt it as much as others in the media or CNN *couchMaddowcough* but he's bats for the wrong team

    When I saw him on TV last night, I commented that it didn't seem very smart, in a Daniel Pearl sort of way, for two high profile homosexuals to be broadcasting from an Islamic revolution.

    But since I won't get credit for saying that last night, here's another one:

    When the Julie Schenecker case gets examined closely, their finances will be an avenue of legal and public interest.
