Demonstrasjoner mot Koran-brenningi Afghanistan

Innlegg Vegard Martinsen 24 Feb 2012, 12:04

Avisene har fortalt om opptøyer etter at amerikanske soldater hadde brent noen eks. av Koranen. Inntrykket som gis er at dette er gjort med vilje.

Men hva var det egentlig som skjedde? Vi finner noe om dette i en utenlandsk kilde:

"The Qurans were among religious materials removed from a detainee facility at Bagram Airfield. The materials were gathered for disposal and were inadvertently given to troops for burning, Gen. John Allen, commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force, said Tuesday.

"This was not a decision that was made because they were religious materials," he said. "It was not a decision that was made with respect to the faith of Islam. It was a mistake. It was an error. The moment we found out about it, we immediately stopped and we intervened."

A military official said the materials were removed from the detainee center's library because they had "extremist inscriptions" on them and there was "an appearance that these documents were being used to facilitate extremist communications."
