A motorcade carrying Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton was hit with eggs and other objects while driving through the Philippines, Wednesday, November 16, 2011.
The incident occurred at 2:45 p.m., in Manila. Clinton is in the Philippines for commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the U.S.-Philippines Mutual Defense Treaty, according to CNN.
According to deputy State Department spokesman, Mark Toner, “the secretary’s motorcade ran into a crowd of approximately 40 to 50 people, protesters.”
“They threw objects at the lead vehicle — I believe it was eggs and paintballs, they maybe threw rock — and the motorcade pulled out of that area and went to the next scheduled meeting place,” said Toner according to CNN.
It is reported that the car carrying Clinton was not hit and there were no injuries, according to CNN.
