PARIS, May 5: Protesters attacked French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen with eggs upon her arrival at a campaign trail in Brittany.
According to a foreign news website, the Front National (FN) party candidate was arriving at the campaign in Dol-de-Bretagne when protesters, shouting “Out with the fascists” and holding signs, pelted a barrage of eggs at her.
She was rushed inside inside by bodyguards.
It is pertinent to mention that the attack took place a day after a debate between Le Pen and front runner Emmanuel Macron, who is expected to sweep to victory in Sunday’s final poll.
The candidates debated on several issues including terrorism and Euro. They also resorted to personal insults throughout their campaigning.
Mr Macron called Le Pen a “parasite” and a “liar”, while Ms Le Pen accused Mr Macron having an off shore bank account.
