Koran protests – level 3
The protests in Afghanistan continue. The protests are because of the destroying of a Koran in the USA last month.
On Friday, 14 people, including seven UN staff, were killed after the protests.
US President Barack Obama described the killings as "terrible" and the Koran destroying as "intolerance and fanaticism".
Ten people died and more were injured on Saturday.
Hundreds of people demonstrated again on Sunday. At least one person has been killed and 18 injured in Kandahar city. Smaller protests were also in other cities. In one city hundreds of demonstrators peacefully blocked a main road for three hours.
The problem began in Florida on 20 March 2011, when Pastor Wayne Sapp set fire to a Koran and destroyed it.
The protests started on Friday, when protesters demonstrated in the UN office. Some demonstrators were killed by guards at the UN office but the demonstrators were stronger. They took weapons from the guards and killed four Nepalese guards, a Norwegian, a Romanian and a Swede.
