At least eight foreign UN workers have been killed in Afghanistan during an attack on a UN compound in the northern city of Mazar-e Sharif, officials say.

The violence occurred during a protest over the burning of the Koran in a US church last month.

Several hundred people had been protesting peacefully in Mazar-e Sharif when the scene suddenly turned violent.

Protesters shouted "Death to the USA, Death to Israel" after Friday prayers, and went on to attack the compound.

On 20 March, Pastor Wayne Sapp set light to a copy of the Koran at a church in Florida.

The burning took place in the presence of Terry Jones, another US pastor who last year drew condemnation over his aborted plan to burn the Koran on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Protests against the Florida burning were held in several Afghan cities on Friday - which demonstrators in Herat had called a "day of anger", Afghanistan's Noor TV channel reports.
