As reporters swarm to get updates from the conflict in Egypt, many enter harm’s way. Big-name anchors are no exception.

Anderson Cooper, an anchor and reporter for CNN, says he and his crew were attacked and punched in the head by supporters of Egypt’s president, Hosni Mubarak. CNN’s Steve Brusk, the coverage manager of the network’s political unit, was the first to tweet the news.

According to an update from CNN (which, like TIME, is owned by Time Warner), no one was seriously hurt. (via Huffington Post)
