Rupert Murdoch Attacked at U.K. Phone-Hacking Hearing
Jul. 19, 2011
July 19 (Bloomberg) -- News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch was attacked with a foam-like substance as he testified before the U.K. parliament's culture, media and sport select committee about allegations of phone hacking.
A man standing behind Murdoch came from his left and leant into him and pushed a plate of the substance into his face. Murdoch's wife Wendi stood up and tried to protect her husband from the man, who was then escorted out of the room by police officers. (Source: Bloomberg)
