Yum! Brands is shuttering all of its KFC franchises in Pakistan in the wake of anti-American protests there, after one of its KFC restaurants was attacked in Lebanon last week, the company said Friday.
"Our KFC restaurants in Pakistan are closing as a precautionary measure," said Yum! Brands spokesman Christopher Fuller. "They will continually monitor the situation to decide when to re-open."
KFC has more than 60 restaurants in 21 Pakistani cities, and has a significant presence throughout the Muslim world. A division of the company called KFC Arabia has franchises in 11 Middle Eastern cities.

Um Malik, you need to calm down. It is just a cartoon. Maybe you have the rag on your head too tight?
Good for Pakistan, filthy KFC, American denier of truth absolute 360* has no place in Muslim culture.
I guess those people who worked there wont mind they are closed. The economy is so great in Pakiston and jobs so plentiful you can afford to have businesses close.
If Yum! Brands were smart they'd rename the fast food stores in places like Pakistan, something like Col Gaddafi's fried jihad chicken.
So fires erupt and lives are lost because of a poorly made short film and a cartoon.
Good times! How did we as a people every manage to get away from living in caves?
Ironically we evolved by eating meat which allowed our brains to develop through added protein to our diets...obviously it did not work as well in some regions as in others.
What stupid you r talking about would to like to make filthy, stupid and bad picture or film of yours, yours family or your parents, would u lik some 1 to make a cartoon of you, if your reply is NO then who u expect for a muslim to tolerate it for a PERSONALITY to Whom they love even more than their lives. West has to understand not to play with the sensitivities of Muslim otherwise it will end in a collision which no1 will be able to stop or no 1 will be saved.
Sounds like you just made a threat. Why are your people so angry and violent?
