Afghans protest Danish cartoons, Koran film
About 1,000 Afghans, incensed by the republication of Prophet Mohammad's caricatures in a Danish paper, marched in a northern city on Sunday demanding withdrawal of Danish and Dutch troops from the country.
The protesters, mostly religious clerics in the city of Mazar-i-Sharif, also condemned plans by a right-wing Dutch politician to broadcast a film on the Koran.
Afghanistan's religious affairs ministry has called the reprinting of Prophet Mohammad's cartoons as an attack against Islam. Several other Islamic countries have demanded that the film by the Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders must not be released.
