Jordanians rally to demand shoe tosser's release

Hundreds of Jordanians are demanding the release of an Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at US President George W. Bush. About 300 people gathered Saturday in Amman, shouting "God is great," and "Down, down with Bush." They praised the Iraqi journalist, Muntadhar al-Zeidi, yelling, "Al-Zeidi is the hero," and burned a portrait of Bush. Al-Zeidi has been in custody since the incident last Sunday when he hurled his shoes at Bush during a news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki.
