‘A kiss from the widows & orphans killed in Iraq’

An Iraqi journalist threw a pair of shoes at US President George W. Bush at a media conference he was about to address with Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki. The Associated Press reports that “the president was not hurt in the incident”.

“This is a farewell kiss, you dog,” the reporter, later identified as television correspondent Muntadar al-Zeidi, yelled in Arabic. “This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed in Iraq.”

“So what if the guy threw a shoe at me?” Bush said, comparing the action to political protests in the United States. “It’s a size 10.”
