Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has survived an attack from the 21st century citizen's weapon of choice - the shoe.
The Prime Minister had been in Seville, Spain on Monday evening when the attack happened. The shoe missed its intended target and hit a bodyguard.
The 20-year-old assailant was swiftly detained. According to reports, the man was of Syrian descent and was shouting "Viva Kurdistan" as he carried out the attack. Turkey's state-owned Anatolian news agency reported he was heavily intoxicated.
The attack comes just days after Turkey was forced to arrest 50 military commanders in what most believe was a coup plot.
