Caught by CSF. Only minor beating. They took one of my Nikons and tried to take my iphone and money. They retreated from protesters.—

Just awful. A journalist just live-tweeted being beaten and robbed by CSF (Central Security Forces) in Cairo, Egypt. As Twitchy reported this morning, the protests over President Morsi’s power grab continue. The Muslim Brotherhood then encouraged its supporters to take to the streets, and chaos has spread to outside the U.S. embassy in Cairo.
Journalist Cliff Cheney was reporting from the scene, and was attacked for it by Egyptian security forces.
This is a “positive step forward,” U.S. embassy?
Twitchy will continue to monitor this situation and update with further developments.
