Muntadar al-Zaidi, 29, is still being held since throwing his shoe, at the soon to be ex- President Bush, at a news conference in Iraq and saying in Arabic “This is a farewell kiss, you dog”. Throwing a shoe is known to be the biggest insult.

Zaidi has suffered greatly for his out burst, whilst being held in prison staff broke his arm and ribs and caused him to suffer internal bleeding his older brother Dargham reported. Mr Zaidi’s family has written to the Swiss foreign ministry.

They hope Switzerland will give him a safe haven. This request was made because “even if many Iraqis support his act, he is at the mercy of all kinds of extremists, his life could become hell in his own country “said Mr Poggia, Zaidi’s lawyer.
