The International Monetary Fund leader, Christine Lagarde has been interrupted by student protesters during her appearance at the University of Amsterdam.

The IMF Managing Director had just began discussing the European debt crisis, when students emerged from the audience chanting, “mic check!” and dozens more would yelled back “Madame Lagarde!”

The students apparently were apparently there to criticise the funds policies. Security guards managed to remove the students and eventually the interview resumed.

The 17-country eurozone is in recession. Christine Lagarde
urged all euro members to push for banking union.
“Obviously what we pursue, is stability, and clearly there is need for that at the moment for a stable discussion to be heard.”
