This just in

Ouch. Mountazer Al-Zaïdi, the Iraqi journalist famous for his wonderful shoe throwing at Bush, has been sentenced to three years in jail.. (french article).

I hope he will eventually benefit from some kind of amnesty. The guy is huge in Irak and elsewhere, and presumably the pressure of international media could help. In fact we can help right now.

It takes a lot of courage to do what he did, and three years is quite a lot of time.
