Ralph Gonsalves had blood pouring from his head

Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister of St Vincent and the Grenadines, was struck by a rock thrown on his head and with blood flowing from the wound and he was hospitalised.

Gonsalves had been walking through a group of some 200 protesters to reach the entrance to Parliament when he was hit by the rock just above his temple Thursday.

A witness heard someone in the crowd yell: "Somebody's busted the prime minister's head!"

The incident took place as Gonsalves, 74, had been returning to a Parliament session where lawmakers were discussing a public health reform that would require most frontline workers to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.
