Anti-Semitic Comic Dieudonne Banned from UK

Anti-Semitic French comedian Dieudonne M'bala M'bala has been banned from entering Britain, the country's interior ministry said Monday, after he reportedly planned to visit to support Nicolas Anelka over the soccer player's use of the "quenelle" gesture.

"We can confirm that Mr Dieudonne is subject to an exclusion order," a Home Office spokeswoman said in a statement. "The home secretary will seek to exclude an individual from the UK if she considers that there are public policy or public security reasons to do so."
