    Pakistani protester dies from breathing smoke of burning US flags

    Pakistani protester dies from breathing smoke of burning US flags


    A protester in Lahore, Pakistan has died after inhaling the fumes from the American flags he burned on Sunday. Abdullah Ismail was part of a demonstration protesting the Islam-trolling film "The Innocence of Muslims" in front of the U.S. Embassy. According to his fellow protesters, Ismail "complained of feeling unwell from [breathing] the smoke" of the burning American flags and was transported to Lahore's Mayo Hospital where he later died. More than 10,000 people filled the streets to protest the film and its blasphemy, blocking traffic for over six hours

    That's just an internet prank story that people so liked they circulated it. But it has been debunked as not true.

    This does not appear to be an internet joke, Joko, I provided several sources that are considered reliable and that have been vetted and cross referenced.

    You keep on repeating the same thing without any sources....come on already...

    This wasn't ironic, though it is darkly funny.

    No doubt America will be blamed for this death, even though the flag was likely made in China.

    Well if we didn't have an official flag, people wouldn't be trying to burn it. So obviously not only is it all our fault, but we must ban flags!

    Don't know if the story is true or not, but it did give me a chuckle nonetheless

    Now, come on folks -- we don't need to ban the flag. All we need to do is pass mountains of legal restrictions that include a mandatory warning label that smoke inhalation may cause death among various inbred Pakistanis suffering from the debilitating effects of generations of first cousin marriage.

    The ironic part was a American made fun of a foreigner who died exercising their freedom of speech.
