Florida Pastors Appeal Ruling Barring Mosque Protest

DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) -- A pair of pastors from Florida are appealing an order barring them from demonstrating outside mosque in Dearborn.

The Thomas More Law Center said Wednesday it has filed a "claim
of appeal" on behalf of Terry Jones and Wayne Sapp.

The men were arrested Friday for failing to post a so-called "peace bond" after a jury in Dearborn determined their planned protest near the Islamic Center of America would have breached the peace. They later posted the bonds of $1 each and were released
from jail.

A burning of the Quran in March at Jones' church in Florida led to a series of violent protests in Afghanistan that killed more than a dozen people.
