Afghans infuriated by a fringe Florida pastor's burning of the Koran stormed a United Nations compound Friday and killed eight foreign staffers - two of whom were beheaded.
Armed with guns seized from guards and fueled by outrage over Pastor Terry Jones' March 20 desecration of the Islamic holy text, the protesters reportedly executed five Nepalese guards and two European workers in Mazar-i-Sharif.
"Two of the killed U.N. staff were beheaded," local police spokesman Lal Mohammad Ahmadzai told AFP.
The publicity-hungry, hate-mongering pastor who became infamous through his plan to burn a Koran near Ground Zero on the 9/11 anniversary lashed out at the protesters.
