In an effort to stop news from going out, Mubarak supporters began attacking reporters. Caught in the middle of a mob scene, Anderson Cooper and his crew is attacked and as Mr. Cooper puts it, he was “punched in the head.”
Below is the official video released by CNN. Anderson is seen in a dimly lit room as he recalled what happened. He apologies to the audience for being in an “undisclosed location,” then said, “journalists don’t like to become part of the story, but unfortunately, they have been made part of the story.”
After getting to a “safe location,” Cooper admits to being hit multiple times.
