Reckitt Benckiser executive slapped during apology
An executive of the consumer giant Reckitt Benckiser, has been slapped during a news briefing in South Korea.
Ata Safdar was apologising over deadly lung injuries, linked to humidifier sterilisers marketed by the firm, when a man stepped onto the stage and slapped him on the back of the head.
The audience in Seoul included a 13-year-old boy who now uses an oxygen tank to breathe. About 100 people have died from inhaling the products, although not all have been linked to Reckitt Benckiser.
