‘Ground Zero’ Koran Desecrated

09.11.10 Bucky Turco

After a mostly quiet morning protest-wise, things quickly heated up blocks from the World Trade center site. A man who refused to give his name, burned and tore out some pages from a Koran at the corner of Park Place and Church Street. UPDATE: Videos added below.

The NYPD quickly reacted and escorted the man out of a press designated area as journalists descended on him and continued to follow him for blocks.

Additional video of the media feeding frenzy that ensued:
