Anderson Cooper: Attacked in Egypt!

by at . Comments

Anderson Cooper got up close and personal with the political upheaval in Egypt this week. A bit too up close and personal, it turns out.

While reporting from Cairo - where demonstrators loyal to embattled President Hosni Mubarak were protesting - Cooper and his camera crew were "pushed and shoved and punched in the head" by attackers, CNN reports.

Luckily, no one was hurt.

Says Anderson, who was reportedly bludgeoned 10 times: "The instinct is try to punch back... but in a situation like that you really can't because that just inflames the crowd all the more... so all we could do is just try to walk as quickly as possible, stay together and seek a safe location, which is where we are now."

Thank goodness. If those crazies damaged a single hair on the Silver Fox's head...
