From the BBC, with thanks to Ana:
Euro MP Robert Kilroy-Silk has had a bucket of farm slurry thrown over him by a protester in Manchester.
The UK Independence Party member was arriving for a BBC radio show when the attacker emerged from behind a bush.
Fellow guest Ruth Kelly MP was also hit by the slurry. Mr Kilroy-Silk said the man, who later disappeared, claimed he was “doing it in the name of Islam”.
In January, Mr Kilroy-Silk quit his BBC One show for remarks he made about Arabs, who he called “suicide bombers”.
Mr Kilroy-Silk had already been taken off air by BBC bosses for the comments, in which he also described Arabs as “limb-amputators, women repressors”.
The remarks prompted outrage among Muslim groups.
