Quran burning on hold as U.S sees boom in Islam conversion
The US pastor who threatened to burn copies of the Koran on Saturday's anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks says his plans are not cancelled - but they are postponed. The initial threat had been met with worldwide outrage. President Obama described the burning ceremony as a recruitment bonanza for Al-Qaeda and said it would put American lives at risk. Meanwhile, a new poll shows that the US has seen a rise in the number of people converting to Islam after 9/11.
