US Troops burn Copies of Holy Koran in Afghanistan

Deeply angered over the improper disposal of copies of Koran by U.S. troops, thousands of Afghans tried to storm the largest U.S. base in Afghanistan on Tuesday.
The protests erupted early Tuesday morning after Afghans working inside the Bagram base reported to local residents that a number of copies of the Koran had been burned.
As usual, the incident prompted the top U.S. military officer in Afghanistan, Gen. John Allen, to offer a public apology and order a prompt investigation.
