Three more anti-U.S. protesters killed in clashes with Afghan police, officials say

At least three more anti-U.S. protesters were killed Thursday in clashes with police, officials said, as rage over the reported abuse of Islam's holy book at the U.S. jail in Guantanamo Bay spread across the country.

Police opened fire on hundreds of demonstrators in Khogyani, a town in eastern Nangarhar province, to prevent them from staging a demonstration, local police chief Maj. Gul Wali said.

Wali said three protesters died and one was wounded.

However, Interior Ministry spokesman Latufallah Mashal said only two people died in Khogyani.

Mashal said a third protester died in a separate clash with police in Wardak province, south of the capital, Kabul.
