(Newser) – Mahmoud Ahmadinejad landed in Egypt today and got a welcome kiss from Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, reports Reuters. But the Iranian leader got a decidedly different reaction in the midst of a crowd when a critic tried to hit him with his shoe, reports ABC News. It was reportedly a Syrian man angry with Iran's support of Bashar al-Assad. The shoe never really came close, however, and the would-be swatter and three others were arrested, reports NBC News. It recalls President Bush's shoe-dodging in 2008 on a visit to Iraq.
