The U.S. embassy said its staff were in “lockdown” and travel had been suspended as thousands of people expressed fury over the burning, in protests that flared for a second day in several cities. […]

"When the Americans insult us to this degree, we will join the insurgents," said Ajmal, an 18-year-old protester in Kabul. […]

Outrage also spilled over in the Afghan parliament, where several members shouted “Death to America” inside the legislative chamber. […]

In neighboring Pakistan’s largest city Karachi, around 100 Islamic seminary students protested against the Koran burnings.

"Pakistan’s government should summon the American ambassador and demand an apology. And if he doesn’t apologize, he should be kicked out of the country," said Abdul Basit, a protest leader.

Others took a harder line.

"No forgiveness for the desecrators of the Koran," a section of the crowd shouted. "Only death."
