This is becoming frighteningly out of control.
A pair of Fox News correspondents stationed in Egypt have reportedly been so severely beaten that they had to be hospitalized.
According to an on-air statement from Fox News' John Roberts:
"Greg Palkot and Olaf Wiig, his dedicated cameraman, were above Tahrir Square yesterday. They were forced to leave their position when a Molotov cocktail was thrown at it, a large fire erupted. They were forced to flee. They ran out and ran right into the pro Mubarak crowd and were severely beaten and had to be taken to the hospital, spent the night in the hospital. The extent of their injuries was fairly grave, however, they have been released from the hospital."
Unbelievable, sickening, and so, so scary.
Our thoughts are with the brave men and women who are currently stuck in Cairo. May no more harm come to any of them, and may they be allowed to return to the US quickly AND safely.
