Civic activists throw shoes at a poster of Bosnian Croat leader Dragan Covic during an action named “Into the New Year with Shoe” in Sarajevo January 3, 2009. A few hundred activists threw shoes at posters of Bosnian Serb, Muslim and Croat political leaders and the top international envoy, protesting against their policy in the ethnically divided Balkan country. Members of the social web-based network Facebook in Bosnia set up the group “With Shoe against Tyranny – Bosnia-Herzegovina Issue”, a part of a global trend of Internet games inspired by an Iraqi journalist who had thrown shoes at outgoing U.S. President George W. Bush. REUTERS/Danilo Krstanovic (BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA)
