Stockholm police arrest two for throwing shoe, books at Israeli envoy

Stockholm Police on Wednesday arrested two people who threw a shoe and two books at Israel's ambassador to Sweden, while he was delivering an address at the city's university.

A spokesperson for the Israeli foreign ministry said Ambassador Benny Dagan was speaking in the afternoon about the upcoming elections in Israel, when the objects were hurled at him from the audience of 50 people.

Joakim Caryll, press officer of the Stockholm Police, said that one heckler threw the shoe, and the other hurled "one or two books." The foreign ministry spokesperson, Lior Hayat, said the objects did not hit the ambassador.

When contacted by Haaretz, Dagan said he could not comment on the case since it is the subject of a police investigation.

The two alleged perpetrators are suspected of battery or attempt of battery, police said, and were questioned by the police at SÃ
