Iraqi Shoe Thrower's Release From Prison Postponed

Breaking News

The expected release on Monday of the Iraqi television reporter jailed for throwing his shoes at former President George W. Bush was postponed, two of his brother said, citing delays in processing his paperwork.

Muntadhar al-Zeidi's family had gathered shortly after dawn outside an Iraqi army base in central Baghdad where he was expected to be released from prison.

After waiting more than five hours, his brother Dargham said he had received a phone call from al-Zeidi telling him he would not be released until Tuesday because of the delays.
