International peacekeepers clashed on Tuesday with Afghans protesting in a remote northern city against caricatures of the Prophet Mohammad, which left three demonstrators dead and forced NATO to send in more troops. Senior Afghan officials said that al-Qaida and the Taliban could be exploiting anger over the cartoons to incite violence, which spread to at least six cities in a second day of bloody unrest in Afghanistan.
