Controversy over Quran burning plan

Leader of small US church plans to burn Muslim holy book, despite condemnation.

    A Florida pastor says he is still determined to burn copies of the Quran on September 11, despite an international outcry.

    The Vatican has described Pastor Terry Jones' plans as "outrageous and grave", while Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, says the act would not be representative of America or Americans.

    But the leader of the small Protestant church says he is not ready to back down.
