Concerns over 'Public Order' Germany Bars US Pastor Terry Jones

The German government has barred US pastor Terry Jones from entering the country. Jones, a notorious extremist who gained global attention in 2010 by threatening to burn the Koran, has said he backs the anti-Islam film that has sparked worldwide protests. Berlin acted on information that German far-right groups planned to invite him.
