Mob kills 8 U.N. workers in Afghanistan

A mob inflamed by a mosque sermon describing the burning of the Muslim holy book by an American pastor attacked a United Nations compound in a northern Afghan city on Friday, killing at least eight foreign staffers, according to Afghan police.

A spokesman for the U.N. mission in Afghanistan, Dan McNorton, confirmed that there had been deaths of U.N. personnel in the city of Mazar-e-Sharif, but said he did not have further details.

Sherjan Durrani, a spokesman for the provincial police, identified the dead as guards at the U.N. compound who were believed to be from the Philippines. However, some Afghan news reports said the dead included guards who were overpowered in the attack as well as other U.N. workers who were inside the compound at the time.To read more LAT

      I agree Mohamad! I mean these UN workers after all were there to help the needy and taken there frustrations on these helpless workers is definitely stupid and do not help the cause of the poor. And most importantly anyone kills in the name of Allah the high Islamic Authority should declare a fatawa on them and rid the good muslim religion out of these people. And I guess one important I should say the Coward minister in Florida is as stupid as these killers for burning a holy book and all it does creates strife and troubles. I am sure many people across the world were outraged by his actions and theses killers should appreciate that many people stood against him and condemned his action. Instead they’re fueling the fire by their action.
