PRAGUE (AP) - Prague’s Charles University says it has banned a lecture by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.

Duke is planning a trip to the Czech Republic at the invitation of neo-Nazis to promote the translation of his book “My Awakening.”

He was scheduled to give a lecture Friday to students taking a course on extremism but the university said Tuesday it was banning the talk because they had heard neo-Nazis were planing to attend.

Duke is expected to give lectures in Prague and the country’s second-largest city, Brno, over the weekend.
