    BAGHDAD — The journalist who threw his shoes at President George W. Bush was handed over to the Iraqi military, an Iraqi official said, as hundreds took to the streets Tuesday for a second day demanding his release.

    Muntadhar al-Zeidi suffered a broken arm and ribs after being struck by Iraqi security agents, his brother told AFP on Tuesday.

    Durgham Zaidi was unable to say whether his brother had sustained the injuries while being overpowered during Sunday's protest against Bush's visit or while in custody later.

    This is really a shame. Violence increases more violence. It is a vicious circle.

    Yeah, Iraq is about a free of a country as China is. I'd love to see a woman dressed in some of the skimpy fashions that women dress in here in America in Iraq. Walk around Baghdad in skimpy shorts and watch how long you live.

    Go to the White House and wait for Bush to make a speech in the Rose Garden and throw your shoes at him. See what happens to you. You can express yourself, you just can't commit assault.
