The car of the US ambassador in Caracas was pelted with eggs and tomatoes yesterday. Venezuela’s ambassador was summoned at the White House and was warned of “severe consequences” if such an incident were to happen again.
U.S. Embassy spokesman Brian Penn tells the Associated Press this harrowing tale:
We were under attack by these motorcyclists throwing fruits and vegetables.
Update: as of April 10, the text of the AP article has changed, and the hilarious Brian Penn quote is not there any more. I wish I had saved a copy of the April 8 text.
