was punched in the head by pro-Mubarak supporters yesterday. Cooper and his crew went to Cairo on Wednesday trying to go to a neutral zone between the two groups. Talking to American Morning, he said they never got that far.

“We were set upon by pro-Mubarak supporters punching us in the head.” Cooper said that he and the crew tried to escape, but that the crowd only grew: “the crowd kept growing, kept throwing punches, kicks…suddenly a young man would look at you and punch you in the face.”
