- Story Text: German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Tuesday (September 5) came under attack from two tomatoes thrown at her during a campaign rally in the southern university town of Heidelberg.
Merkel was not directly hit but some splashes ended up on her red jacket which she was seen wiping while standing on stage with others.
The chancellor appeared to be unperturbed by the incident and Karl Lamers, a veteran CDU member of parliament, continued his speech without interruption.
