UK bans extremist pastor

A US pastor who had threatened to burn a Koran on an anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks has been barred from visiting Britain.

Florida pastor Terry Jones had planned to address a right-wing group, England is Ours, and join it for meetings and demonstrations from February 9 to February 16.

The Home Office said Jones had been “excluded from the UK” because the Government opposes extremism in all its forms.
