Ten United Nations staff were murdered - two by beheading - after extremists stormed their compound in northern Afghanistan today.
Protesters broke into UN offices in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif after a demonstration against Koran burnings in the America turned violent.
A small breakaway group attacked the UN compound, throwing stones and climbing on blast barriers to try to gain entry. They seized weapons from guards and opened fire before storming the site.
An Afghan police source, who asked not to be named, said the chief of the mission in the city was wounded but survived.
Among those murdered were Norwegian, Romanian, Swedish and Nepalese nationals. Two were decapitated, it is understood.
A UN spokesman confirmed that workers had been killed at the mission, but he said the situation on the ground was still confusing and it was difficult to 'ascertain facts'.
Staffan De Mistura, the top UN representative in Afghanistan, was heading to Mazar-i-Sharif to handle the matter personally, he added.
Over a thousand demonstrators had flooded into the streets of the normally peaceful city after Friday prayers, where they heard reports about the Koran burnings in America last month.

AMERICANS FOR A MUSLIM FREE AMERICA.
WE LEARNED ALL WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ISLAM ON 9-11.
islam- it’s a religion of peace.
Don’t believe them?
They will behead you to prove it.
Goebbels is laughing in his grave!
Hey 0bama: look what your guys are doing to your guys.
A religion of peace? I think not.
Such a peaceful religion....
Here’s what happens next:
1. The left, the MSM, will blame the Pastor.
2. There will be absolutely nothing said by the so-called moderate muslims, nothing from CAIR, nothing at all.
How can this be? GWB told us that Islam is the “religion of peace”, didn’t he?
And - and - and, what about Obama’s “outreach” to muslim countries? Isn’t any of that making a difference?
We just gotta try harder!
Bush and Obama want that here!
. . So, they answer with doing something that’s a zillion kazillion times worse than burning the Koran.
The UN is pathetic with their rules of engagement. Mow the bastards down.
At least they know how to treat the UN
islam, the world’s only self-caricaturing religion.
We just gotta try harder!
Yeah, especially since 0bama’s own guys (Muzzies) are killing his other guys (UN). 0bama must be all wee-weed over this.
Of course I regret these deaths, but it’s not like they killed anybody useful.
Am I remembering wrong or was no Koran actually burned? I thought the pastor backed down.
Did you know Islam is a religion of peace and mercy?
Evil vs evil = Good.
Of course I regret these deaths, but its not like they killed anybody useful.
I’ve killed a few rattle snakes and it didn’t bother me. Same same.
