Egg thrown at French President Macron during food trade fair
PARIS (AP) — French President Macron was hit on the shoulder by an egg thrown at him by a young man during an international food trade fair in the French city of Lyon. A video of the incident shows Macron walking through the crowd when an egg bounced off him without breaking. Lyon prosecutors said the 19-year-old student who threw the egg has been immediately detained. An investigation opened for “assault on a person in a position of public authority” will seek to determine his motive. In June, Macron was slapped in the face by a man as he greeted the public in a small town in southeastern France. That slap prompted a wide show of support for Macron from politicians across the ideological spectrum.
