Muslim protesters threw stones at a prison van carrying four men accused of distributing anti-Islamic literature to court Monday, and riot police fired into the air to break up the demonstration. About 200 people packed into the courtroom, but there was no attempt inside to disrupt the trial of US citizens Andrew Saucier and Paul Garcia and Kenyans Michael Otanga and Patrick Ngei. The four are accused of handing out a pamphlet that questioned the legitimacy of Islam and using words that would injure the feelings of Muslims. They face fines if convicted. The trial was to continue Wednesday. A day after the pamphlets were distributed outside a primary school on Oct. 17, Muslims demonstrated outside the Baptist church where the missionaries are based.
