EGYPT, Continued: Reporters, Including CNN's Cooper, Beaten in Egypt

Anderson Cooper Among Reporters beaten.

— Journalists covering protests in Cairo, including CNN's Anderson Cooper and two Associated Press correspondents, have been roughed up in the crowd.

Cooper says he and his crew were attacked by supporters of President Hosni Mubarak on Wednesday. CNN later said no one was seriously hurt.

Two Associated Press correspondents and several other journalists were roughed up during gatherings of Mubarak supporters. European papers reported that a Belgian journalist was also beaten, detained and accused of spying by unidentified people in civilian clothes.

State TV reported Tuesday night that foreigners were caught distributing anti-Mubarak leaflets, apparently trying to depict the movement as foreign-fueled.

Re: EGYPT, Continued: Reporters, Including CNN's Cooper, Beaten in Egypt

teh secretary of state said that "september is not soon enough" for Hosni Mubarak to step down.



My question is what gives the US the authority to say when and if he steps down...???

Or if he MUST step down EARLY??

He said that he would not run again....but that was not good enough for the anti-Mubarak protesters.

Protesters both sides of this issue are doing a good job at pissing off the Military.

Which is all of Egypt. The military never engages in such events, they are just deployed to secure the capital or wherever the riots are being held.

Internal affairs=Police .
External affairs=Army/Military.

Allegedly the Military stood down.

Some (most) of these weather reports are inaccurate.

At the rate things are deteriorating in Egypt, I think they will end up in an all out civil war. That country looks like it is getting ready to tear itself apart and I feel sorry for all the innocent civilians that will be caught in the middle.
