KABUL - Around 250 young Afghans gathered at Kabul University on Tuesday shouting "death to America" on the fifth day of protests against the burning of a Koran by a fundamentalist US pastor.

Thousands of people have taken to the streets in protests around Afghanistan. There has been deadly violence in two cities, although most protests ended with nothing more dramatic than burning of flags and effigies.

Twelve people died in Kandahar over Saturday and Sunday, when demonstrators waving white Taliban flags burnt cars, attacked police, smashed shops and sacked a girls' high school.
