French President Emmanuel Macron was re-elected President and during his first appearance in public since the election, he was attacked with tomatoes. However, the tomatoes missed hitting the President and hit one of his security guards.
Immediately, his security officials covered him from all directions and even unfolded an umbrella to shield him from above. He was then moved to a safer place.
The 44 year old Macron defeated his rival Marine Le Pen and is serving his second term as President. He will have a tough time as parliamentary elections are slated for June and he would want to maintain a majority.
Many more protests are expected and police had to spray teargas to disperse demonstrators when they gathered in central Paris after the President’s re-election.
