Bill Clinton, who is on a European speaking tour, was hit by a raw egg that a protester threw yesterday as the former U.S. president strolled around the old district of Warsaw.

At least one egg hit him on the arm as he stepped out of an antique store before Polish and American security personnel wrestled a 19-year-old man to the ground. The man was arrested.

Mr. Clinton took off his suit jacket and continued his walk for another 15 minutes, signing autographs and greeting tourists.

"The president laughed off the matter, saying it was good for young people to be angry about something," a spokeswoman, Jennifer Palmieri, said. Reuters
