Afghan people have reportedly forced Finnish and Swedish soldiers from the US-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) out of Afghanistan's northern province of Samangan.
The forces apparently left Samangan on Monday after hundreds of enraged locals protested at the desecration of the Holy Qur'an in the United States, demanding the departure of foreign forces from their province, a Press TV correspondent reported.
The report comes after the organization of almost daily protests in Afghanistan since the American evangelical preacher Wayne Sapp set fire to a copy of the Holy Qur'an in a small church in Florida in March.'
