US Koran Burning Event On Hold, Says Pastor Terry Jones

"The US pastor who threatened to burn copies of the Koran on the anniversary of 9/11 on Saturday says his plans are not cancelled but ""on hold"". Florida pastor Terry Jones said he felt he had been lied to by a local imam who had got him to drop the plan - which has caused international outrage. Mr Jones initially said the imam had told him an Islamic centre planned near New York's Ground Zero would be moved. But the imam, Muhammad Musri, denied such any such deal had been reached. Mr Musri, from the Islamic Society of Central Florida, said he had only agreed that he and Mr Jones should fly to New York on Saturday and speak with the leaders of the Islamic centre project. Mr Jones, pastor of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, which has fewer than 50 members, had named Saturday ""International Burn a Koran Day""."
