Protester throws shoe at Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao in UK
In a throwback to the George Bush shoe-throwing incident, a protester on Monday threw a shoe at Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao interrupting his speech at the Cambridge University in London.
The shoe thrown by a "young Western-looking man" missed by a few feet the Chinese leader, whose visit to London has been marred by pro-Tibetan protests, the Times online reported.
Wen was nearing the end of his address on global economy when the man stood up, blew a whistle and shouted: "How can the university prostitute itself with this dictator? How can you listen to these lies?"
