Interpol issues alert over Quran burning plans

Interpol issues alert over Quran burning plans

The international police organization Interpol has issued a global alert to its 188 member-countries determining "strong likelihood" of violent attacks if a Florida church burns copies of the Quran.
Interpol said in a statement Thursday that Pakistan's interior minister, Rehman Malik, called the organization and asked it to warn other police forces around the world of an increased terror threat.
Interpol said it based its alert on Pakistan's warning and its own assessment that "there will be tragic consequences" if the Quran burning goes ahead on Saturday.
