Blair pelted with eggs in Dublin

Anti-war protesters throw eggs, shoes and plastic bottles at former UK prime minister during promotion of his memoirs.
About 200 people in the Irish capital shouted that Blair had "blood on his hands" when he arrived at the bookshop on Saturday amid tight security. The projectiles did not strike Blair.
His book, entitled A Journey, contains his defence of Britiain's decision to go to war with Iraq in 2003 under his leadership. It was launched earlier this week and has been an immediate top seller.
Some of the protesters scuffled with police and at least two people were arrested.
Blair spent about two hours in the store before emerging to more shouts and hurled eggs. He was quickly driven away.
