Maybe if Obama keeps apologizing they will stop rampaging over a few burnt books?
(BBC) — Thousands of enraged Afghans have taken to the streets for a fourth day, after US soldiers inadvertently set fire to copies of the Koran.
In the deadliest day of unrest so far, at least 12 people died across the country, as mobs charged at US bases and diplomatic missions.
More than 20 people have been killed since the unrest began, including two US soldiers who died on Thursday.
President Barack Obama has apologised for the Koran-burning incident.
In a letter to his Afghan counterpart Hamid Karzai, Mr Obama said the books had been “unintentionally mishandled”.
US personnel apparently put the books into a rubbish incinerator at Bagram air base, near Kabul.
Most of the deaths reported on Friday were in western Herat province, which had seen little unrest previously.
A group of demonstrators tried to attack the US consulate in Herat city, burning police vehicles and leaving several officers injured.
Hospital officials confirmed four people had been killed, but it was unclear how they had died.
