Muntadar al-Zaidi’s act of protest made him a hero in large parts of the Arab world and beyond.

Zaidi, who called Mr Bush “a dog” during the December 2008 incident, was convicted of assault.

The TV reporter’s three-year prison sentence was reduced to one because he had a clean record.

He was released three months early for good behaviour.
