'Shoe thrower' targets Iraq's PM

The man known for throwing a shoe at former US president Bush campaigns against Nouri al-Maliki.

    Demonstrators in Iraq have been calling for sweeping reforms and in their midst is Muntadhr Al Zaydi, the man known internationally for throwing a shoe at former US president George Bush.

    Al Zaydi had to stay away from his country for months after serving jail time, but he is now back on the streets of Baghdad, on a mission that is again putting him at odds with the authorities.
