Iran Calls to Condemn U.S. in Koran Riots

Iran has called on the United Nations Human Rights Council to condemn the United States over an accidental near-burning of copies of the Koran. The incident has led to days of violence in Afghanistan in which dozens have been killed.

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali-Akbar Salehi referred to the incident as a “deplorable act of incitement” and a “horrible act.” U.S. military leaders have apologized for the mistake.
