TEHRAN (Press Shia) – A woman was charged with common assault after striking Australian Prime minister Scott Morrison on the head with an egg.

– World news –

The woman, 24, allegedly walked up behind Scott Morrison and threw an egg, which bounced off his head and did not smash.

The protester, who had a carton of eggs with her, was tackled to the floor by security, ABC reported.

The incident happened at a Country Women’s Association (CWA) event in Albury, on the NSW-Victorian border.

NSW Police later confirmed the protester had been taken into custody and charged with common assault and possession of cannabis, after police allegedly found the drug on her during a search.

The charged woman was granted strict conditional bail and is due to appear at Albury Local Court on May 27.

Eggs have become a weapon of choice in Australian politics this year.

Queensland senator Fraser Anning had an egg smashed over his head by a Melbourne teenager in March, after he linked Muslim immigration to the Christchurch mosque massacre.
