A popular American newsman was attacked and injured as the protests in Egypt turned ugly on February 2.  Supporters of President Hosni Mubarak took to the streets in large numbers and confronted anti-government protesters.  Mubarak supporters broke lines on horseback and on camels and encroached on areas where protesters gathered.  The protesters, who were more numerous, pulled their attackers off their mounts and beat them bloody.  Things degenerated from there as both sides tore sidewalks apart and raided a construction site in Cairo, then threw stones and chunks of concrete at each other.  Government supporters on rooftops rained firebombs on their opponents below while the protesters used pieces of corrugated metal and satellite TV dishes as shields.  Some soldiers fired shots in the air to try to get the crowd's attention and disperse them, but the military still refused to take a physical part in ending the violence, saying they had no orders to do so.  Mubarak restored some Internet access yesterday and stated he intends to finish out the last seven months of his current term and not seek reelection.  His supporters showed a growing disregard for journalists and foreigners on Wednesday when they attacked memebers of the press.  Two Associated Press correspondents and other journalists were assaulted, including CNN's Anderson Cooper and his crew.  Cooper was punched in the head at least ten times, according to a report on Twitter by a crew member, but he was not badly injured.
