Tomatoes, shoes and water was thrown at US secretary of state Hillary Clinton's motorcade by Egyptian protesters who shouted, "Monica, Monica, Monica" as she left the newly reopened American Consulate in Alexandria.

Clinton's van which was was around the corner from the protesters was not hit, a senior state official said.

The chants of "Monica" referred to the infamous Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton affair.

The assault came on after Clinton addressed accusations that US supported former president Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
