US President Barack Obama has issued a plea for religious tolerance, amid the continuing row over a small church's plan to burn copies of the Koran.

Terry Jones, the church's pastor, has put his plans on hold but they have sparked international outrage.

Mr Obama told reporters at the White House: "We have to make sure we don't start turning on each other."
