Bush shoe sculpture ‘taken down’

A sculpture of a shoe erected in Iraq to honour a journalist who threw his footwear at George W Bush has been dismantled, reports say.

When the sculpture was unveiled, artist Laith al-Amari insisted it was not a political work, but a “source of pride for all Iraqis”.
