Report of Quran burning sparks protests at Afghan base
Hundreds of demonstrators have gathered outside the Baghram Airfield in Afghanistan, spurred by reports that U.S. soldiers had burned a copy of the Quran at the base.
(CNN) Kabul - NATO officials acknowledged that Islamic religious materials, including copies of the Quran, had been improperly disposed at the base, but could not definitely say whether any was burned.
"We think very little was disposed (of)," said Col. Gary Kolb. "We don't think any was burned because we were able to recover most of the materials."
