Throwing shoes at politicians was contagious

February 3 2009

On the eve before the students of Cambridge University, spoke Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. It was dedicated to the global financial crisis. Suddenly, in the direction of politics flew shoes.

Apparently, some of abstract Chinese Premier delight of the listeners are not called. His shoes thrown in policy, one student, but missed. Footwear fell a meter away from the rostrum, and the violator of the order very quickly, was detained by the security service. As informs television channel "Vesti", Wen incident was not embarrassed, and Chinese guest said he hoped that the incident will not prevent the Sino-British friendship.

It is worth noting that Cambridge was in fact repeated the act of Iraqi journalist Muntazer Al-Zeid, who on Dec. 14, 2008 during a joint press conference by President Bush and Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki in Baghdad as a sign of resentment in the Bush threw his shoes.
