ALEXANDRIA, Egypt –may have visited hundreds of countries as U.S. Secretary of State but few visits might have ended as badly as her recent trip to Egypt.
Angry protesters threw tomatoes and shoes at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's motorcade on Sunday during her first visit to Egypt since the election of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi.
A tomato hit an Egyptian official on the face, and shoes and a water bottle landed near the armored vehicles carrying Clinton's delegation members in the port city of Alexandria after she delivered a speech on democratic rights.
Protesters also chanted: "Monica, Monica", a reference to Former President Bill Clinton's extra-marital affair. Some chanted: "leave, Clinton", Egyptian security officials said.
Though it was unclear who the protesters were or what were their political affiliations, but they showed their hatred for U.S. influence on their country.
Protests and demonstrations have become common in Egypt since former, long-time US ally, was brought down by massive uprising last year.
