Scores of people have gathered in Afghanistan's capital Kabul on Monday to denounce a U.S. church's plan to burn the Islamic holy book the Quran. The crowd in Kabul, numbering as many as 500, chanted "Long live Islam" and "Death to America" as they listened to fiery speeches from members of parliament, provincial council deputies, and Islamic clerics who criticised the US and demanded the withdrawal of foreign troops from the country. Pastor Terry Jones, of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, a non-denominational Christian church, said he planned to burn the Quran on Saturday, 11 September, to mark the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. ARE YOU FEELING THE LOVE YET?
