Anderson Cooper has had to go “underground” in an “undisclosed location.” The CNN anchor says he fears for his and his crew’s safety as attacks by supporters of Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak grow in Egypt.
“We’d like to be showing you live pictures of what’s happening in Liberation Square right now,” Anderson told Piers Morgan last night. “But we can’t do that because our cameras have been taken down through threats, through intimidations, through actual physical attacks, there are no live cameras that we can get access to right now.”
After Anderson and his crew were attaked two days ago, they moved to an unidentified hideout. However, they’ve had to move again after yesterday’s violence broke out.
Still, Anderson says they have “eyes on what’s happening” in Liberation Square.
“I don’t mind telling you I’m a little bit scared because we don’t really know what the next few hours will hold and I think there’s a lot of people tonight who are scared in Egypt,” he admitted. “I think there are people in that square who are fighting for their lives and understandably so because this is the second night of a full-on assault on them and they have been defending themselves for their lives.”
