A French-Armenian protester hurled a cup of pomegranate juice at Turkey’s ambassador to France, Hakkı Akil, as he gave a talk at a university in the French capital on Monday. The pomegranate is the symbol of Armenia.

The protester threw juice on Akil during his talk on “Secularism in Turkey and France” at the faculty of law at Paris Descartes University.  The attacker, who is not a student, was quickly detained by security.

After the attack, Akil told Turkey’s Cihan news agency that the protester was a French citizen of Armenian descent, adding that the French police had identified him.

“They have orchestrated attacks before. In Marseille and Paris, they attacked [Turkey’s] tourism offices,” he said.
