CNN correspondent Anderson Cooper was attacked and punched in the head by pro-Mubarak protesters in Cairo, Egypt the other day. Though he was hit about ten times, the network says no one from his crew sustained serious injuries.
He says his first impulse was to hit back, but he then reconsidered and only focused on making sure he and his men got to safe ground as soon as possible.

Word of the attack first broke on Twitter, when CNN’s Steve Brusk wrote, “Anderson said he was punched 10 times in the head as pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover the demonstration.”
