Koran burning threat sparks Afghan protests
Thousands of protesters have taken to the streets across Afghanistan over plans, now on hold, by a small Florida church to burn copies of the Koran.
Many of Friday's protests in Afghanistan were held after worshippers emerged from mosques, following Eid prayers marking the end of Ramadan.
In Jalalabad demonstrators lit fires in the streets and chanted "Death to Obama".
