Protests continue in Afghanistan following the burning of a Kuran at a U.S. air base in the country, leaving more than 10 people dead, including four Americans.

FOX's Steve Centanni reports from Washington in our ongoing series on national security:

Seven Americans were injured, and two Afghans killed, in a a grenade attack Sunday in the northern province of Kunduz.  Afghan President Hamid Karzai went on nationwide T.V. urging calm, while U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker said on CNN the violence will eventually die down.  In the meantime, he says...

(Crocker) "This is not the time to decide that we're done here, we've got to redouble our efforts."

President Obama has apologized for the Kuran burning, but the turmoil continues.  So far, four Americans have been killed, including two who were gunned down in Kabul on Saturday.
