Iraq to "probe" custody abuse of shoe thrower Meantime The Lebanese television channel NTV, offered shoe thrower Mutander al-Zaidi a job saying "he will be paid from the moment the first shoe was thrown".
In Egypt a government-owned newspaper, praised Zaidi's actions saying that "Pelting the American president with shoes was the best way for expressing what Iraqis and Arabs feel toward Bush."
