Abuse for Blair at book signing

Tony Blair faced a barrage of abuse in Dublin yesterday as he was confronted by anti-war protesters at his first book signing.

Shoes and eggs were pelted at the former prime minister as he arrived at a Eason’s city centre book store to promote his controversial autobiography, A Journey.

The missiles did not hit Mr Blair, who was heckled and jeered as he emerged from his car.

Angry activists then clashed with gardai as they tried to push down a security barrier outside the O'Connell Street store.
