Pro-Mubarak demonstrators attacked a CNN production crew in Cairo, including anchor Anderson Cooper, the network says.

Cooper “was punched 10 times in the head as pro-Mubarak mob surrounded him and his crew trying to cover demonstration,” CNN’s Steve Brusk tweeted.

“The attackers pushed and shoved the CNN crew and punched them in the head,” the CNN report says, noting that thankfully, no one was seriously hurt.
