Pakistani protester dies from breathing smoke of burning US flags

A protester in Lahore, Pakistan has died after inhaling the fumes from the American flags he burned on Sunday. Abdullah Ismail was part of a demonstration protesting the Islam-trolling film "The Innocence of Muslims" in front of the U.S. Embassy. According to his fellow protesters, Ismail "complained of feeling unwell from [breathing] the smoke" of the burning American flags and was transported to Lahore's Mayo Hospital where he later died. More than 10,000 people filled the streets to protest the film and its blasphemy, blocking traffic for over six hours

No one noted the error in the news story. Islamabad, not Lahore, is Pakistan's capitol. The US building is therefore a consulate, not an embassy.

Does it matter here in the US? Like all the other claimed (you seem to be reffering to) appolgies Fox et al will report it and harp on it. Fact is none of the ones I have heard of were ever made, and I've heard if quit a few.

Whatever. Over there they probably believe it's due to our toxicity. Perhaps we could intentionaly distribute flags like this!
