Fox News Journalists Beaten in Egypt

Greg Palkot and Olaf Wiig got roughed up while in Egypt.  Roughed up is an understatement.  They gave their first interview to John Roberts, who’s been reporting on the Egyptian unrest from London.  According to

Fox News correspondent Greg Palkot and cameraman Olaf Wiig were in Tahrir Square during the worst of the violence last week. When the building from which they were reporting came under siege, they were forced to flee into the streets and right into the middle of pro-government supporters.

The two were both severely beaten — to the point they had to be hospitalized. The two have now returned to London, and in their first interview since the incident, recounted the danger they experienced.

The video is after the jump.  But beware:  some of the injuries sustained may disturb you.
