We as journalists believe that our colleague Muntadar al-Zaidi, who protested at President George W. Bush in Baghdad on Sunday is guilty of nothing but expressing Iraqis’ legitimate and overwhelming opposition to the US-led occupation of their country.
We call on you to guarantee his safety and effect his immediate release from custody.
