Katie Couric, Brian Williams Leave Egypt After Being Mobbed

HollywoodNews.com: After being mobbed Wednesday near Tahrir Square in Cairo, news anchor Katie Couric has decided to leave Egypt and return to the United States, according to The New York Times.

Couric has been reporting from Cairo since Tuesday, but departed the war-torn city today and landed in New York around 5 p.m. She will broadcast Thursday’s “CBS Evening News” from the network’s New York studio.

The Times also reported that Brian Williams exited the nation Thursday and will broadcast tonight’s “NBC Nightly News” from Amman, Jordan. Williams was also reporting in Cairo until Wednesday night.

Couric and Williams are the first major journalists to leave Egypt. The country’s current hostile political climate has provoked mass riots throughout the nation, and more than 30 journalists, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists, have been targeted while covering the protests opposing newly-elected President Hosni Mubarak.
