The desecration of the Koran by religious extremists in the United States has returned to take to the streets of the Afghan city of Kandahar hundreds of protesters who have expressed a second day of their discomfort with the burning of the holy book and its satiation by the presence Western country, wracked by Taliban violence.

As in the protest yesterday, which killed 10 people and nearly a hundred others injured, the event has resulted in violence.

The demonstrators blocked the main road in eastern Afghanistan have gone to the UN office in that city, in a gesture of criticism against the burning at the stake of the Quran by an American fundamentalist pastor.

Earlier, U.S. President, Barack Obama, condemned the burning of the Koran by a small extremist religious community in Florida that has triggered a wave of attacks killed dozens in Afghanistan. Through a statement released by the White House, Obama said that "the desecration of any holy text, including the Qur'an, an act of extreme intolerance" but not enough to "attack and kill innocent people is an affront response to decency and dignity.

" Ten people were killed Saturday and another 83 were injured in Kandahar, during a demonstration against the burning of the holy book musulames. The day before, a similar march in Mazar i Sharif degenerated into an assault on the UN offices in the city that left 20 dead, including seven foreign employees of the organization.

The protests show the extreme sensitivity of the Afghans to any insult to their religion, but also his growing weariness with the Western presence in their country. The president extended his condolences to the families of those killed in protests by Muslims in Afghanistan. "Americans pay today to honor those killed in the attack on the United Nations in Mazar i Sharif," stated the president in a statement distributed by the White House.

"No religion tolerates the killing and beheading of innocent people, and there is no justification for such a disgraceful and deplorable act," said Obama. Jones keeps up the challenge Meanwhile, the enlightened pastor Terry Jones, driver of the burning of the holy book of Islam, has pledged to lead a protest on April 22 in front of the largest mosque in the United States, in the town of Dearborn, State of Michigan.

The evangelical pastor had already threatened with the destruction of copies of the Koran on the anniversary of the attacks of September 11 last year, a threat that ultimately did not pass. "Our intention is to inform that there is a radical element in Islam," said Jones in an interview with the agency.

"Obviously it's terrible if people die murdered. I think, on the other hand, this shows the radical element of Islam," said regarding the deaths of civilians in Afghanistan during the protests. On 20 March, the evangelical pastor Wayne Sapp set fire to a copy of the Koran in a small church in Florida.

Sapp, a member of World Outreach Center Dove of Peace, said the Quran had been found "guilty" of various crimes during a "trial of eight months" and therefore had to "run." Terry Jones, director of World Outreach Center Pazl Dove, was also present during the condemnation to the stake of the book.
