White na­tion­al­ist says he was pre­vented from en­ter­ing Europe

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

A lead­ing fig­ure in the U.S. white na­tion­al­ist move­ment said Fri­day that he was briefly de­tained in Ice­land and had to re­turn home be­fore he could speak at a con­fer­ence in Swe­den.

Richard Spencer said he was trav­el­ing from Mary­land to Swe­den on Tues­day when he was stopped at the Reyk­javik air­port. In Novem­ber, Poland banned Spencer from en­ter­ing 26 coun­tries in Europe’s visa-free Schen­gen area for five years.
