As the violence between protesters supporting Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and those calling for the president's immediate removal from office continues to escalate in Egypt, several well-known journalists have come under attack. CNN's Anderson Cooper was punched in the face repeatedly by a pro-Mubarak mob, and now CBS's Katie Couric and ABC's Christiane Amanpour have also had frightening run-ins with angry protesters.

"They have really taken it out on the press, they're blaming the press, those pro-Mubarak supporters, for all their woes," Amanpour told ABC News' Diane Sawyer. "And they were very menacing, they told us not to go in when we tried to go in this afternoon or take our destiny into our own hands, they warned."
