A 24-year-old woman has been charged with common assault after she egged the Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, on Tuesday.
The PM was on the election campaign trail at an event in Albury when the woman approached him and attempted to crack an egg on the back of his head. However, television footage showed the egg bouncing off his head without breaking, before she was dragged away by security.
Morrison was struck by her hand and an elderly woman was knocked to the ground in the scuffle, but police said nobody was injured.
Reporters at the scene retrieved the egg, which had not broken.
