Muntazer al-Zaidi, who hurled his shoes at then US President George Bush, on way to first TV appearance.
An Iraqi reporter who hurled his shoes at then US President George Bush was released from prison on Tuesday, his brother said.
Muntazer al-Zaidi, whose act of defiance during a news conference last December summed up the feelings of many Iraqis towards the former U.S. leader, was met outside jail by some parliamentarians who support his case, Uday al-Zaidi said.
"He left the jail a few minutes ago and now he's on his way to Baghdadiya TV (Zaidi's TV station)," Zaidi's brother Uday said. (Reuters)
