Two U.S. political bloggers who founded an anti-Muslim group have been banned from entering Britain following reports they were to attend a march by the far-right English Defense League, the government said Wednesday.

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, who set up Stop Islamization of America and operate the website Jihad Watch, have been forbidden from entering Britain on the grounds their presence would “not be conducive to the public good.”

The EDL is planning a march Saturday ending in the Woolwich district of London, where a British soldier was brutally murdered last month. Geller and Spencer had been expected to attend.
