‘Ten UN workers killed’ at Afghan Koran protest
Ten foreign UN workers were killed on Friday in an attack on the UN headquarters in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif by demonstrators protesting at the burning of the Koran by a US pastor, police told AFP.
Afghanistan had condemned the “disrespectful and abhorrent” burning of the Koran by evangelical preacher Pastor Wayne Sapp in a Florida church, calling it an effort to incite tension between religions.
President Hamid Karzai called on the United States to bring those responsible for the burning of the Islamic holy book on March 21 to justice.
Uh, yeah. Don’t you just love the way Muzzies flip things around and suddenly they are the victims here? It’s like a wife-beater who, after beating the crap out of his wife, tells her, “See what you made me do?”
Furthermore, considering that Pastor Wayne Sapp’s speech and religious freedoms are Constitutionally protected, it will be interesting to watch how Our Dark Overlord works his way around that pesky little technicality…
Friday’s attack followed a protest march led by religious clerics and attended by around 200 in Kabul on Friday against the Koran burning and plans announced by Karzai in February for possible permanent US bases in Afghanistan.
The demonstrators, who left from mosques in downtown Kabul after Friday prayers, burned a US flag and stamped on it, shouting “Death to America”.
Yup, nothing like Friday worship services and prayers to help reinforce those “peaceful” Islamic values…

This from Reuters:
Two U.N. staff killed in Afghanistan were beheaded: police
(Reuters) – At least eight foreign U.N. workers were killed, two of them beheaded, on Friday in the northern Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif after a demonstration against the burning of Korans by a U.S. preacher, a regional police spokesman said.
“Eight foreigners were killed and two were beheaded,” said Lal Mohammad Ahmadzai, a police spokesman for the northern region.
Over a thousand protesters had flooded into the streets of the normally peaceful city after Friday prayers, and after two or three hours violence broke out.
Maybe they should just stop attending Friday prayer services…
The chief of the mission in the city was wounded but survived, and the dead included employees of Norwegian, Romanian and Swedish nationalities, he added.
