Afghans Protest Against... What Exactly?

For the third straight day, Afghans were protesting against a Koran-burning that didn't happen.

Demonstrators took to Afghanistan's streets for a third day on Sunday to protest against a U.S. preacher's plan to burn copies of the Koran even though he has since withdrawn the threat.

Chanting "Death to America" and "Death to Christians", demonstrators clashed with Afghan security forces in Logar province, south of the capital Kabul.

The pastor of an obscure U.S. church has abandoned plans to burn the Moslem holy book on the anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the United States.
