Irish protesters hurl bottles, eggs, shoes at Tony Blair during book signing

• Rawstory
More than 200 noisy demonstrators, many chanting slogans criticizing Blair over the 2003 Iraq war, had gathered for the event and witnesses said plastic bottles and flip-flops were thrown at him as his motorcade arrived.

None of the objects -- also reported to include eggs and shoes -- landed near the former premier as protestors surged towards a security barrier separating them from him before being repelled by police.

One woman said she tried to make a citizen's arrest on Blair once he was inside the bookshop where the event was taking place.
