Video: British official gets slimed

An environmental activist threw a green liquid at Britain's Business Secretary Peter Mandelson as he arrived for a conference aimed at reducing carbon emissions.

The group Plane Stupid, which campaigns against government plans to build a third runway at London's Heathrow Airport, says one of its activists, Leila Deen, was behind the stunt.

Deen walked away after the incident.

Mandelson appeared for a television interview after the attack, seemingly fine, and said the substance "seemed like green soup or something."
