CBS News 2 U.S. troops killed in Koran backlash
By Tucker Reals
Two U.S. troops have been shot to death and four more wounded by an Afghan solider who turned his gun on his allies in apparent anger over the burning of Korans at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan, an Afghan official tells CBS News.

SAN DIEGO — The Marine Corps has discharged the lone Marine convicted in the 2005 killings of unarmed Iraqi civilians in the town of Haditha, a spokesman said Tuesday.
Former Sgt. Frank Wuterich ended his service Friday, said Marine Corps spokesman Lt. Col. Joseph Kloppel.
Wuterich’s attorney, Neal Puckett, said in an email to The Associated Press on Tuesday that the Corps gave him a general discharge under honorable conditions — one step below an honorable discharge.
Wuterich had his rank reduced to private as part of a plea deal that abruptly ended his manslaughter court martial last month at Camp Pendleton and spared him imprisonment.
The 31-year-old father of two pleaded guilty to negligent dereliction of duty as the leader of the squad that killed 24 Iraqis after a roadside bomb exploded in the town, killing a fellow Marine and wounding two other Marines. Read the rest here.

“Die, die, foreigners!” the demonstrators shouted. Some fired rifles into the air. Others threw rocks at the gate of the base.
