AFGHANS TORCH U.S. FLAGS TO PROTEST RUMORED QURAN DESECRATION

9644A large crowd of protesters in Afghanistan rallied against U.S. forces, accusing the U.S.-NATO-led coalition of desecrating the Quran, according to media reports.

The crowd was protesting a rumored sacking of a mosque and subsequent desecration of the Quran by coalition forces, formally known as the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF).

ISAF denied the protesters’ allegations against its forces to Breitbart News, saying they were based on Taliban propaganda.

“The Taliban is propagating misinformation regarding an Afghan-led partnered operation in Wardak on 4 January. There is no basis in fact for the allegations,” U.S. Lt. Col. Will Griffin told Breitbart News. “While Afghan forces respectfully entered a mosque, coalition forces were not with them and were not near any religious materials during the operation.”
