The protester was tackled to the ground by security
A woman has hurled flour at the Socialist candidate in the French presidential election, Francois Hollande, at a campaign stop in Paris.
Bodyguards leapt forward to protect the candidate and the assailant was restrained, then carried from the stage by her hands and feet.
Mr Hollande, covered in white, stayed calm during the incident.
Mr Hollande was speaking at La Porte de Versailles about housing when the woman hurled a bag of flour.
Named as Claire Seguin, from Lille and aged 45, she was heard shouting that she had been denied justice and was being "assassinated by Socialists in Lille", Le Figaro newspaper reports.
