Baghdad (AP) The trial of the journalist who threw his shoes at President George w. Bush has been postponed.
The trial of Muntadhar Al-Zeidi was to begin tomorrow on charges of assaulting a foreign leader. But a court spokesman says the trial has been postponed indefinitely pending a high court ruling on what charges the journalist should face.
Al-Zeidi threw his shoes at Bush during a joint news conference with prime minister Nouri Al-Maliki on December 14.
The gesture of contempt for the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq made Al-Zeidi a folk hero in Iraq and thousands of people have demonstrated for his release.
