Six dead in Afghanistan Koran burning protests

At least six people have been killed and dozens injured in Afghanistan after protests spread over the burning of copies of the Koran at a US airbase.

One person was killed in Kabul, one in the eastern city of Jalalabad and at least four in Parwan province.

US officials apologised on Tuesday after Korans were "inadvertently" put in an incinerator at Bagram airbase.

The ISAF spokesman Brigadier General Carsten Jacobson says the incident was an unfortunate mistake.
