Did Nikita Khrushchev, the First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, bang his shoe?

On October 12, 1960, Nikita Krushchev is rumored to have smashed his shoe on his desk at the United Nations General Assembly during an argument with Philippine delegate Lorenzo Sumulong after he claimed that the USSR had “swallowed up” Eastern Europe and “deprived [it] of political and civil rights.” This angered Krushchev beyond imagination.
