Using the Koran for Target Practice

President Bush has joined Major General Jeffery Hammond in apologizing for the desecration of the Koran which occurred when an unnamed U.S. soldier used the holy book for target practice.
A statement Sunday from the American military called the desecration of the Koran, in Radwaniya, just west of Baghdad, "serious and deeply troubling" and said the soldier had been disciplined and sent out of Iraq. Iraqi police officers had found the Koran on May 11 perforated with bullet holes after American forces withdrew from the area.
