A Syrian man who wished to protest Iran's support for President Bashar Assad tried to throw a shoe at Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday in Cairo, Turkish news Agency Anatolia reported.

Ahmadinejad was visiting al-Azhar mosque in Cairo during the first visit by an Iranian president in Egypt since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

The shoe-wielding man was thwarted by security and other Egyptians that surrounded the Iranian president, and was removed from the area while shouting, "you're the one who ruined Syria" at Ahmadinejad.
