Shoe attack on Indian minister


A Sikh reporter has thrown a shoe at India's home minister Palaniappan Chidambaram, saying he was evading a question about anti-Sikh riots in 1984.

The reporter was identified by local television channels as Jarnail Singh, a veteran correspondent with one of India's largest newspapers, the Hindi daily Dainik Jagran.
