Florida pastor oversees Quran burning
by Adelle M. Banks
The controversial Florida pastor who halted plans to burn a Quran on the 9/11 anniversary last year oversaw the burning of the Islamic holy book on Sunday after it was found "guilty" during a "trial" at his church.
"We had a court process," said Pastor Terry Jones, who acted as judge, in a phone interview. "We tried to set it up as fair as possible, which you can imagine, of course, is very difficult."
Jones said about 30 people attended the mock trial at his Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville.
