    Authorities in Afghanistan are looking for an Afghan police intelligence officer who they say killed two U.S. officers inside the Afghan Interior Ministry in Kabul on Saturday. Abdul Saboor, 25, is the main suspect in the killing, which took place at close range inside the heavily fortified compound. The killing prompted NATO to recall all its staff and advisers stationed at Afghan ministries, and the attack took place as angry protests raged for a sixth day across the country over the burning of Qurans by NATO soldiers. Demonstrators lobbed grenades at a U.S. base in northern Afghanistan and clashed with police, leaving seven international troops wounded and two Afghans dead.
