Riots break out across the Muslim World in response to allegations of Koran abuse at Guantanamo Bay detention camp

CAIRO, May 28 -- Muslims in several countries demonstrated Friday in resurgent anti-American anger over reported desecration of the Islamic holy book, the Koran, and some protesters called on their leaders to demand an apology from the United States.

The Muslim Brotherhood held rallies in the Egyptian cities of Cairo and Alexandria, where worshipers and protesters wiped their feet with paper replicas of the U.S. and Israeli flags on their demonstration route.

JALALABAD, may 11 Afghan police opened fire on protesters on Wednesday in violent demonstrations which left four dead and dozens wounded after a report that US interrogators had desecrated the Koran, a health official said.

US troops stationed in the conservative Muslim city of Jalalabad, 130 km east of Kabul, were confined to base during the protest, witnesses said.
