Germany Bars US Pastor Terry Jones
US hate preacher Terry Jones, one of the supporters of the anti-Islam video "Innocence of Muslims," is to be banned from travelling to Germany. According to information obtained by SPIEGEL ONLINE, Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle has asked the Interior Ministry to prevent Jones from entering the country.
A spokesman for the Interior Ministry said Sunday that a visit by Jones would "run counter to the interest of maintaining public order."
The ban came in response to information that German far-right groups such as Pro Deutschland and Pro NRW plan to invite the preacher to Germany in the coming days.
