Dove World Outreach Center church pastor Terry Jones from Gainesville, Florida, canceled his plans to burn the Koran last Sept. 11 but apparently followed through in March, spurring a violent riot in Afghanistan on Friday.

Two people were beheaded and a total of seven have been killed after a mob attacked a U.N. compound. Jones said, “The Koran was ‘found guilty and a copy was burned,’ – this apparently incited the attack.
