They are trying to pull down the statue of Saddam in downtown Baghdad. Abu Dhabi TV is showing it live. It seems that hitting someone in the face with your shoe is a serious insult in Iraq, since the crowd around the statue are throwing their shoes at it. There have been several shots of people hitting pictures of Saddam in the face with their shoes. Some guy just hugged a Marine. The Americans are swarming all over downtown Baghdad.
