This time Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao gets a shoe

An unnamed human rights activist throws a shoe at Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao during a speech at Cambridge university (February 2009).

Wen was nearing the end of his address on global economy when the man stood up, blew a whistle and shouted: "How can the university prostitute itself with this dictator? How can you listen to these lies?"

He then took off his shoe and threw it at the stage missing Wen by a few feet.

"Stand up and protest, you're not challenging him," he shouted in "European accent" before being bundled out of the room, the Times said.
