BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — French intellectual Bernard-Henri Levy said Thursday after left-wing activists threw a pie in his face in Serbia that the incident illustrates the Balkan country is far from having democracy.

Levy, a philosopher known for his criticism of Serbian nationalist policies during the 1990s Balkan wars, was in Belgrade for the showing of his documentary film about the Kurds fighting the Islamic State group.

A young man chanting “Murderer, leave Belgrade” hurled a pie at his face while he was presenting his film, “Peshmerga,” on Wednesday. Another man climbed the stage with a banner bearing a communist hammer and sickle that read, “Bernard Levy advocates imperialist murders.”
