Burning of Korans in NATO Prison Library in Afghanistan

I guess book burning is not in the past. This morning I read an article about Korans being burnt in one of the largest NATO bases in Afghanistan:

The Korans were burned after they were removed from a prison library at NATO’s largest base in Afghanistan, triggering protests and violence across the country that killed at least 30 people. Shortly afterward, two American officers were shot dead in a secure area of the Afghan Interior Ministry.
