It's off

Ros Atkins Ros Atkins | 22:23 UK time, Thursday, 9 September 2010

UPDATE: Or is it? Having watched CNN try and explain what has happened over the past few hours, their description of it all as 'surreal' seems close to the mark. At the moment, the burning appears to be off, but may yet be back on. Either way, we'll have plenty to discuss come the time of the show.

ORIGINAL POST: Pastor Terry Jones says he will not burn Korans on Saturday, and he says the reason is that the Park 51 Islamic cultural centre will move further away from Ground Zero. The cancellation seems certain, but those behind Park 51 say they're not moving anywhere. All the latest developments are here, and of course you can comment below. I'm also posting everything that comes in on twitter here.
