Burqa-clad Afghan women protest Danish cartoon, Dutch film

Dozens of Afghan women have burned the Dutch and Danish flags in protest of an anti-Islam cartoon and film.
About 70 women chanted slogans against Denmark and the Netherlands during Wednesday's protest outside the Afghan Ministry of Information and Culture. Most wore the all-covering blue burqa.
The women called on Danish and Dutch troops to leave Afghanistan. They also urged the Afghan government to shut down their embassies and cut diplomatic relations.
The film, made by a Dutch politician, intersperses images of recent terrorist attacks with verses from the Quran and fiery speeches by Islamic extremists.
The protesters were also angered by the recent republication of a cartoon showing the Prophet Muhammad wearing a bomb-shaped turban.
