Protests force anti-Muslim politician Geert Wilders to retreat
by Suzy Jagger
A far-right Dutch politician who was turned away from Britain after criticising the Koran as a 'fascist book' was today forced to hastily change the location of a scheduled press conference in London in the interests of his own security.
Geert Wilders, who is head of the Freedom Party, flew into Heathrow airport this morning after winning a court battle to enter the country.
Mr Wilders had been due to host a press conference on College Green, opposite the Palace of Westminster, at noon.
However, about thirty male activists from a group called Islam for UK began chanting: "Wilders burn in hell" and "Sharia for UK".
