Egged: Czech opposition leader attacked at European Parliament election meeting - Telegraph
Czech activists pelted the leader of the leftist Social Democrats with hundreds of eggs at a rally on Wednesday ahead of European and national elections.

The eggs flew as Jiri Paroubek, the opposition leader, and his entourage addressed a pre-election meeting in Prague.

"We won't let this discourage us. Shame on you," said Mr Paroubek, as yolk dripped from his chin and belly.

No explanation offered beyond that Paroubek is said to have annoyed Czech youth by supporting the closing of "a techno party" four years ago.

But photos of egged faces.

Eggs for the Telegraph! Splat!
