Deputy minister gets egged

A young woman was detained by police in Rethymno, Crete, on Sunday after throwing an egg at Deputy Citizens? Protection Minister Manolis Othonas who had been attending an athletics gathering in the northern port.

The egg hit Othonas on the back, prompting members of his security detail to react.

The woman, who reportedly threw the egg while shouting out slogans against the government?s ongoing austerity drive, was arrested without offering up any resistance, according to police.
