Murdoch 'attacked' with foam at hearing

Media mogul was answering questions from British MPs at a hearing on phone hacking scandal.

    The chairman of News Corp Rupert Murdoch has been attacked in the British parliament while answering questions on the country's phone hacking scandal.

    A protester struck the media mogul with what appeared to be a plate of white foam, forcing the already dramatic hearing to be suspended.
