US pastor Terry Jones cancels Koran burning

From BBC News:

The pastor of a small US church who planned to burn copies of the Koran on the anniversary of 9/11 has cancelled his protest.

Terry Jones said he was calling off the event after the group behind a planned Islamic centre near Ground Zero in New York agreed to relocate it.

But the cultural centre’s organisers said they had no plans to move it.

He had been telephoned by US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates to urge him to reconsider his plans as well as being visited several times by the FBI.

Phew, thank goodness that’s over with….
