KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) -- Afghan officials say protests are getting underway in two eastern provinces, making Saturday the fourth straight day of demonstrations against the destruction of Qurans at a U.S. base in the country.
Government officials say at least 11 people were killed in protests across Afghanistan on Friday and scores wounded. Since Wednesday, more than 20 people have been killed as rallies turned violent. Among the dead were two U.S. Army soldiers and one Afghan police officer.
There were no immediate reports of violence Saturday in the protests in Laghman and Nangarhar provinces.
