Israeli top court chief hit with thrown shoe


Israeli top court chief hit with thrown shoeIsrael’s Supreme Court president fell backwards and suffered bruises when she was hit in the forehead by a shoe thrown during court proceedings on Wednesday, public radio reported.
A man in his fifties stood up during the session and hurled a pair of sneakers, yelling “corrupt” and “rotten,” the radio said.
Bailiffs seized the man, who apparently felt wronged by a court decision, media said.
The judge’s husband, Yeheskiel Beinish, said she was hit on the forehead and the nose and that her glasses were broken.
