How they died: UN envoy reveals harrowing details of heroic workers' last moments

Once again, victims of Islamic violence have displaced blame onto third parties.  In this case, the U.N. mission in Afghanistan Staffan de Mistura blames a Koran burning in Florida for the murder of UN workers by Muslim fanatics. In doing so, de Mistura has removed responsibility from the murderers and in effect, has become a stooge for the murderers. de Mistura also demonstrates a craven cowardice that will only encourage more Muslim violence.

There can be no comparison between a legal, constitutionally protected political demonstration and the murderous response by Muslim.

The head of the U.N. mission in Afghanistan has described the horrific executions of seven colleagues.

Staffan de Mistura spoke in sombre tones as he described how the U.N. workers dashed into a dark bunker hoping to escape the mob of Afghan protesters angry over the burning of a Quran by a Florida church.

His words come as Pastor Terry Jones, the man de Mistura and many others blame for instigating Friday's protests, defiantly promised to put Islamic prophet Mohammed 'on trial' for his next 'day of judgement' publicity stunt.

His last protest, in which he oversaw the burning of a copy of the Koran after a six-hour mock trial, has been directly responsible for a wave of violence in Afghanistan that has left 30 people dead and inflamed protest throughout the Middle East.

Staffan de Mistura, the top U.N. envoy in Afghanistan, recounted their harrowing deaths of workers who hid in a bomb proof bunker.

The envoy told how the workers were hunted down and brutally slain – their bodies found later in three different parts of the compound in northern Afghanistan.

He said: 'They were killed when they were running out of the bunker.

'One was pulled out alive because he pretended to be a Muslim.'
