Shoe-thrower memorialized

A new statue honoring shoe-throwing Iraqi journalist Muntadar al-Zaidi has been erected in Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit -- only it doesn't depict al-Zaidi. It represents his shoe.

Al-Zaidi, who's reportedly been tortured in police custody, faces 15 years in prison for what's considered an act of aggression against a head of state.
