The IMF's senior representative to Turkey has quick reflexes _ successfully ducking eggs thrown at him during a student protest.
Mark Lewis was speaking before economics students at Uludag University in Turkey's northwestern city of Bursa on Thursday when the eggs came flying. As he ducked behind a lectern, a protester shouted "IMF get out!" _ a slogan often used by leftists.
Video of his reaction _ the second such attack directed at an International Monetary Fund official in Turkey _ spread Friday to websites around the world.
In 2009, a student journalist threw a shoe at then-IMF Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn at a university in Istanbul. The shoe missed him. Turkey was engaged in talks over new loan deal to boost investor confidence at the time.
