Now, Karachi student flings shoe at US journo

October 09, 2009 13:24 IST
Pakistan opened its account in 'shoe-gaming' with a Karachi student flinging his shoe at an American journalist.

The shoe was flung at Clifford D May, a US journalist visiting Karachi University on Thursday, the local media reported.

May, who is a Republican and was said to be an active member of the party during George W Bush's administration, was speaking at the Department of International Relations on 'Pakistan's Role in Countering the Challenge of Terrorism' when a student got into action.

Though the shoe was way off the mark, May was whisked away by his security staff.
