While Bibles are destroyed, desecrated and banned from Muslim countries, and Christians, Jews, and Hindus are systematically persecuted, slaughtered and oppressed -- this horror. Killing UN employees, an organization voluntarily and largely driven by the Organization of the Islamic Conference. Instead of a thank you, one big FU.
Al Jizz implies that the preacher made 'em do it; that's how in control the Muslim world is of the narrative.
Afghanistan: United Nations workers beheaded in attack on compound Telegraph UK
Eight foreign employees of the United Nations in Afghanistan have been killed after protesters overran their compound in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.
Two of the dead were beheaded by attackers who also burned parts of the compound and climbed up blast walls to topple a guard tower, said Lal Mohammad Ahmadzai, a police spokesman for the northern region.
It is believed to be the deadliest ever attack on the UN in Afghanistan.
Over a thousand protesters had flooded into the streets of the normally peaceful city after Friday prayers to denounce the burning of Islam's holy book, the Koran, by a US pastor, and after two or three hours violence broke out.
Police fired into the air in an unsuccessful bid to control the crowd.
A United Nations spokesman confirmed employees had been killed but declined to comment on numbers of dead or their nationalities, saying reports from the scene were confusing.
Staffan De Mistura, the top UN diplomat in Afghanistan, has flown to Mazar-i-Sharif to handle the situation personally.
A police source, who declined to be named as he was not authorised to speak to the media, said protesters had stormed into the compound where they attacked the victims.
The chief of the mission in the city was wounded but survived, and the dead included employees of Norwegian, Romanian and Swedish nationalities, he added.
Russia called on the Afghan government and international forces to "take all necessary measures" to protect UN workers in a statement issued by the foreign ministry after the attack.
If the death toll given by the Afghan police is correct, it would make it the deadliest attack on the United Nations in Afghanistan.
The worst previous attack was an insurgent assault on a guesthouse where UN staff were staying in October 2009. Five employees were killed and nine others wounded.
But it was not clear if Friday's killings had any direct link to the insurgency, or were simply a product of broader anti-Western sentiment.
Mazar-i-Sharif has remained relatively peaceful as the insurgency gathers force in other parts of the north, and was recently chosen as one of the first areas for a transition of security from Nato troops to Afghan forces.
Long-standing anger over civilian casualties has been heightened by the Koran burning and the recent publication of gruesome photographs of the body of an unarmed Afghan teenager killed by U.S. soldiers.
The Christian preacher Terry Jones, who after international condemnation last year cancelled a plan to burn copies of the Koran, supervised the burning of the book in front of a crowd of about 50 people at an obscure church in Florida on Sunday, according to his website.
The Koran burning was denounced by Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, and Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari.
"The special representative to the [UN] Secretary General, Stephane de Mastura, is on his way to Mazar-i-Sharif now to deal with the situation personally on the ground," the spokesperson said.
Daud Daud, commander of Afghan National Police in the north, said five Nepalese guards were amongst those killed.
