The controversial portrait of South African President Jacob Zuma painted by Brett Murray, was defaced last week while on display at the Goodman Gallery in Johannesburg. Footage shown on a national news station shows a man in a suit painting a red X over the president's genitals and then his face. Next, a man in a hoodie rubs black paint over the president's face and down the painting. Two men - one white, one black - were arrested and charged with trespassing. The painting has been removed from the gallery. (Associated Press)
