If the regime doesn't want to be seen as directly responsible for clashes with protesters--or wants to make those protesters seem like they're less representative of the public--then they can organize and send in "pro-regime civilians" to clash with them.Роберт wrote:The pro-Mubarak protesters apparently liked punching Anderson Cooper in the head. I'm not sure why they are there, but I am not shocked at reports that the government is organizing them and police are participating.
Heh, feels like this should be a joke of some sort: you can tell they're Mubarak supporters because they try and destroy cameras and attack foreign media.
And because of the police identification they still had on them.
In the video, Anderson Cooper says it was the pro-Mubarak crowd that he was in, in case you missed that and though I was assuming.
