UPDATE: Muntadar al-Zaidi has just been released.
Muntadar al-Zaidi, the Iraqi journalist that got you all talking around the world, for throwing his shoes at former US President George W Bush during a news conference is due to reach the end of his prison sentence.
His family is reported to be preparing a hero’s welcome if he leaves prison, as expected. Should he come home to a hero’s welcome?
This blogger calls it the feel good story of the day, and mentions some of the gifts he’d been promised, which include an Iraqi living in Morocco promising to send his daughter to be al-Zaidi’s wife. Does he deserve all this?
Now that his sentence is coming to an end, should he be celebrated as a hero? Or has he served the sentence he deserved for being disrespectful?
