Burning an American flag proved fatal for a Pakistani protester, who reportedly died from inhaling fumes from the ignited icon of independence.
Some 10,000 people rallied this week in Lahore, the capital of the Punjab province, to protest the movie trailer that Muslims say insults Islam, according to the International Herald-Tribune. One participant, identified as Abdullah Ismail, died after being taken to an area hospital. Witnesses said he had complained of feeling sick from the smoke from American flags burnt at the rally.
The rally was organized on the city's landmark mall by the Tehreek Hurmat-i-Rasool. Despite a ban on rallies on The Mall, local officials blocked off the road leading to it from noon to 6 p.m., apparently to facilitate the event.

Another idiot gone from the gene pool.
Definitely the feel good story of the day.

God bless America! Our flag is protecting itself (since the Occupancy in the White House won’t).
The question is do we send flowers? How about hand grenades in the shape of flowers? That would be a blast of a funeral.
He reportedly died,or may have died from the fumes.
Works for me.
I wish they were all that easy to get rid of.
Time to break out the world’s tiniest violin . . .
Was the flag made in China? If so, can we have thousands more sent to the muzzies?
Made in China...
I would send a ham for the wake if I knew where to send it.
Hmmmm, maybe it’s time to encourage flag burning.
