Anyone here tried flushing the Quoran down a toilet? It's a fair sized book, and most toilet openings are pretty restricted.

I think the casualties reported were civilian, not military. At least that is what I have read and heard. I think it likely that the rioting was caused by Taliban supporters who incited the crowds after the Newsweek article appeared in print. Riots likely would have occurred had their been reports of the Quoran being spat upon, or thrown in the dirt.
