FOX Nation reported:
Violence between pro- and anti-government factions in Egypt has spilled over to Western journalists covering the unrest.
Several journalists have been attacked or threatened, including Fox Business Network’s Ashley Webster and Fox News’ Greg Palkot.
Webster tells Fox News that security burst into his hotel room and forced the cameraman off the balcony, shouting that they will kill them.
“This crowd has been very angry toward journalists,” he told Fox News.
Greg Palkot, covering the growing violence at Tahrir Square, was also confronted by several pro- and anti-government protesters. In the middle of the chaos, Palkot said that 30 rioters, with the help of an Egyptian military officer, fended off a large crowd of people and allowed Palkot and his cameraman to slip down a back alley and into a small hotel.
