Beijing Apple Store Pelted with Eggs as iPhone is Delayed

The Beijing Apple store has had a major debacle in its opening of sales of the new iPhone 4S there.  The store was supposed to open at 7:00 am but as the time reached 7:15, the crowds of people who had amassed waiting for the sales to begin, began chanting and hurling eggs at the store.  Swat teams were called in to control the crowd and the sale of the iPhone there halted.

In most other cities, tickets were given out for a maximum of two iPhones per person and the sales went smoothly.
