Australia PM Scott Morrison egged on campaign trail

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been egged by a protester while campaigning ahead of the nation’s general election.

The egg grazed Mr Morrison’s head but did not break, local media said. The incident also knocked an elderly woman to the ground.

Footage showed a 25-year-old woman being restrained at the scene. Police later said she had been arrested.

Mr Morrison described the egg thrower as “cowardly”.

The incident happened at a Country Women’s Association event in Albury, about 330km (200 miles) south-east of Canberra. No-one was injured.
