Marine Le Pen was the target of an egg throw in Saint-Amand-les-Eaux Friday, June 3, when she came to support RN candidate in legislative elections in the 20th District of the North. We learned this from the party.
According to Sebastien Chenu, a party spokesperson, "A marginal positioned before our office threw a egg in the direction Marine Le Pen who was protected" and AFP.
"I was right next to her. Everything was fine immediately (...) there was not one scratch or smudge." he said.
"The egg that was sent towards Marine Le Pen didn't hit her. He crashed into the hand of his bodyguard. He was able to stop him from crashing into his hand.
Guillaume Florquin (RN candidate in the North's 20th district) told AFP he would file a complaint. A Twitter video shows that Marine Le Pen lowered and covered her face as she walked down the street during the shooting.
Marine Le Pen is running for re-election at the Pas-de-Calais 11th District.
