Posted on | February 20, 2009

The trial of the Iraqi television journalist who threw his shoes at President Bush was adjourned after 90 minutes on Thursday 19 February 2009 until 12 March 2009.
Journalist, Muntader al-Zaidi, appeared at the Central Criminal Court, charged with assaulting a foreign leader. He was briefly questioned before the chief judge of the three judge panel adjourned the case for an inquiry into whether President Bush’s visit was formal or informal.
Mr. Zaidi’s family and supporters present at court clapped, ululated and shouted slogans of support to him.
