Eggs and shoes have been thrown at the former prime minister Tony Blair as he arrived at a book signing in Dublin.

It happened as he arrived at the Eason bookshop on O'Connell Street to sign copies of his autobiography.

The missiles, which were thrown by anti-war protesters, did not hit Mr Blair.

Activists clashed with Irish police as they tried to push down a security barrier outside the bookshop.
