US pastor Terry Jones: 'I am not an extremist'

Help

The government has banned a controversial US pastor from entering the UK for "the public good".

Pastor Terry Jones was criticised last year when he threatened to burn a copy of the Koran outside his church in Florida on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Mr Jones, who was invited to speak in Milton Keynes in February, told the BBC he was "very disappointed" and hopes the ban will be lifted.
