US soldiers killed in Afghanistan shooting - CBSNewsOnline

Although President Barack Obama himself apologized for U.S. soldiers burning the Koran in Afghanistan, it is not stopping the infuriated mobs to respond violently.

Already a number of violent protests in the Middle East have been witnessed after the awful incident.The recent example of which is the smashing and desecration of British graves by Libyan islamists. It is an insult to WW2 heroes the way these graves across Benghazi Military Cemetery in Libya are being rampaged. The broken graves belong to those who fought in the Western Desert campaigns between 1942 to 1943.

Twelve people have reported dead today which is the highest recorded after the incident. Angry mobs consisting of more than 2,000 furious Afghans some of them chanting anti US slogans like ‘die, die foreigners’,have accumulated outside the giant US air base at Bagram. They are seen throwing stones toward soldiers shouting 'Allahu akbar, Allahu akbar.'

Protesters have even showed copies of the burnt Korans which Obama thinks as unintentional burning at NATO's main Bagram air base. It was when the Afghan labourers found charred copies while collecting rubbish that the situation became worse.
