EXTRA:

Anderson did an interview from Egypt that was posted on Huffington Post earlier today. Here's a small snippet:

"One way to understand the sheer intensity of the scene in Tahrir Square can be found in Cooper's description of his interview with opposition leader Mohamed ElBaradei in the square during a nighttime protest. "It was a complete mob scene," he said. "It was like a political mosh pit. The crowd was so intense that it was very difficult to get close to [ElBaradei]...my feet were lifted off the ground." Later, Cooper interviewed ElBaradei at his house. He said ElBaradei joked about the relative calm of the situation compared to the night before.
