This decision was probably for the best.
Although we know that Anderson Cooper wanted to stay in Egypt and continue covering the protests, he has decided to leave the country.
The journalist tweeted on Saturday:
It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to leave #Egypt. CNN continues to have many teams in place. It was a hard decision to leave.
After experiencing several attacks from pro-government groups and eventually hiding in an undisclosed location, this seems like the best move for Anderson.
Hope you have a safe flight home, buddy.
