Escalating violence in Egypt targeting journalists and camera crews, all trying to report on the massive demonstrations that broke out Jan. 25, have prompted many news teams to evacuate for safety. NBC's Brian Williams and CBS' Katie Couric left the country on Thursday.

Anderson Cooper, despite being attacked Feb. 2, insisted days later that "we will find a way" to stay and cover the protests against President Hosni Mubarek. However, he recently told followers on Twitter that he's packed up.

"It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to leave Egypt," he wrote Saturday. "CNN continues to have many teams in place. It was a hard decision to leave."
