At least 12 people died after an enraged group of demonstrators attacked a United Nation’s compound in Afghanistan’s capital city of Kabul on Friday. The mob—protesting a Quran-burning in March by Florida pastor Terry Jones—turned violent after Friday prayers at a nearby mosque. Early reports indicated the dead included eight foreigners working at the compound.
