Some bloke started shouting and threw a shoe.
President Ahmadinejad was not attacked.
Very misleading news story.
Should be trashed.

I bet he threw his shoe at him.
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was forced to flee a mosque on a state visit to Egypt when a protester took off his shoes and threw them at him, it emerged today.

Iran is the ally of the minority shia government in Syria. I don't know if you have heard, but there is a civil war in Syria between Shiites and Sunnis. The Shiites are supported by Iran, Hezbollah, and Russia. The Sunnis are supported by Al Qaida, the United States, Qatar, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and others.
Three Egyptians and a Syrian were arrested for trying to attack Iranian President Ahmadinejad in front of Al-Hussein mosque in Cairo. The leader is in the Egyptian capital on a visit.
A video shot by a Turkish cameraman shows a young man shouting at Ahmadinejad and trying to hit the president's head with a shoe, instead striking one of his bodyguards.
Security sources told Reuters that the three Egyptians were all members of al-Gamaa al-Islamiya, a hardline Islamist group.
The four men were detained on suspicion of trying to attack the President, the security sources said. The men were held overnight but released on bail of 500 Egyptian pounds ($75) each on Wednesday.
The Syrian attacker was heard chanting anti-Iranian slogans for supporting the Syrian government, Turkey's Anatolia news agency reported.
