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.
The Government has sought feedback on the Digital Identity bill which is to be debated in parliament. Do you support the introduction of this Bill?
