US Soldiers Disciplined for Koran Burning

Ad Feedback

Six Army soldiers have been disciplined for burning Korans at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan last year.

The incident sparked nationwide riots and resulted in the deaths of four U.S. servicemembers at the hands of Afghan soldiers.

A Defense Department review found the soldiers displayed no malicious intent to disrespect the Koran or defame Islam. The soldiers will not face criminal charges.

The report blames miscommunication and ignorance about the handling of Islam's holy book for the incident.

Soldiers at the base burned the Korans after learning prisoners were using them to communicate.
