From the BBC:

Thousands of enraged Afghans have taken to the streets for a fourth day, after US soldiers inadvertently set fire to copies of the Koran. 
In the deadliest day of unrest so far, at least 12 people died across the country, as mobs charged at US bases and diplomatic missions. 
More than 20 people have been killed since the unrest began, including two US soldiers who died on Thursday.

It didn't end well for Danny and Peachey, either.

For the concluding scene of what all of Daniel Dravot's efforts to civilize the Afghans gets him, see here.
