In the latest turn of events, pro-Mubarak crowds have attacked CNN’s primary anchor Anderson Cooper.
Cooper and his crew were trying to get to the “no man’s land” between pro- and anti-Mubarak camps. However, they didn’t get far when pro-Mubarak supporters attack Cooper and his crew. Cooper said he was punched in the head.
“The crowd was throwing punches, kicks, trying to grab us,” he said.
“Suddenly, a young man would come up, look at you, and punch you in the face.”
