The testimony of Rupert and James Murdoch before the UK Parliament about the ongoing phone hacking scandal was temporarily suspended following an attack on the elder Murdoch.
Photos and videos capturing the moment are now circulating, showing what appears to be a pie tin full of foam being pushed towards Murdoch’s face. As you can see in the video, Murdoch’s wife quickly rose to protect her husband, though CNN reports he was “hit squarely in the face” by the foam pie.
As of 12:10 p.m. ET, the hearing had resumed with Murdoch showing no signs of injury. Police have an unidentified perpetrator in custody, though many are now speculating it was UK comedian Jonnie Marbles who tweeted “It is a far better thing that I do now than I have ever done before #splat” shortly before the attack.
