For second time, Iranian protesters in Davos hurl paint-filled, rotten eggs at mullahs' Foreign Minister

At about 12:30 pm yesterday, a group of protesting Iranians and families of victims of political executions and political prisoners in Iran threw paint-filled and rotten eggs at mullahs' Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi and the accompanying delegation as they were leaving the morning session of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. This was the second "egg attack" on Kharrazi yesterday and much of his car was covered in paint.

Four members of the Revolutionary Guards escorting Kharrazi in another car and using the cover of diplomats charged at the Iranian protesters to beat them, but were confronted with the chants of "Down with Khatami," "Down with Terrorists," and "Terrorist Kharrazi out of Davos." Swiss on-lookers and foreign visitors at the scene were disgusted by the violent and abusive behavior of the Revolutionary Guards, who were forced to flee. But before they sped away in their car, Iranian protesters hit several parts of the diplomat-terrorists' cars with paint-filled eggs.

Iranian protesters had hurled eggs at Kharrazi's car earlier on Saturday, as he was leaving his hotel.

After the constant protests by Iranians against his presence in Davos, the mullahs' Foreign Minister has changed his hotel and is not making any public appearance outside the close confines of the forum.
