Afghans protest against foreign troops, six hurt

GHAZNI: Six people were
hurt when Afghan police opened fire on demonstrators who
claimed U.S. troops had desecrated a Koran during a raid on a
mosque.
The incident took place in Deh Khodaidad village in Ghazni,
southwest of the capital, Kabul.
Police said a government team had been sent to investigate
claims that foreign troops had raided the mosque, rounded up
worshippers and tore apart copies of the Koran on Thursday
night.
A spokesman for the U.S. military said he was aware of a
“peaceful protest”. Afghan police said any injuries had been
caused by “saboteurs” in the crowd.
Afghanistan has seen a series of violent protests in recent
years over reports of insults to Islam.
More than 74, foreign troops operate under NATO and U.S.
military's command in Afghanistan, fighting the al Qaeda-backed
Taliban.
