Will somebody please tell these guys the pastor didn’t burn any Qur’ans. TWO Killed today in Afghan Anti-Quran Burning Protest
CBS Sept. 12, 2010 – Two protesters died and four were injured as Afghans protested for a third day Sunday against a plan by an American pastor to burn copies of the Islamic holy book, despite his decision to call off the action.
