Lebanese communists and activists protest in front of Iraqi Embassy in Beirut
Lebanese communists and activists protest in front of the Iraqi Embassy in Beirut December 18, 2008 demanding the release of Iraqi TV reporter Muntazer al-Zaidi. Zaidi shot to fame when he called Bush a "dog" in Arabic at a joint news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki in Baghdad last Sunday and threw both his shoes at Bush, a gesture that is a deep insult in the Arab world. The placard (R) reads: "The people ruled: Muntazer is a hero". REUTERS/Jamal Saidi (LEBANON)
