The Blair scare project

In a major case of ‘doh!', Tony Blair's bodyguard accidentally fired his handgun at Ben-Gurion International Airport. It is thought he was unloading the weapon outside the terminal building when it went off. No one was hurt but airport security and police rushed to the scene. It's not the first time Middle East peace envoy Blair has unwittingly alarmed Israeli authorities. In May, Israeli fighter jets scrambled to intercept an unidentified aircraft suspected to be hostile, only to find out that it carried the former PM.
