Czech authorities have released former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke from detention and ordered him to leave the country.
Police spokeswoman Katerina Rendlova said Mr Duke must leave the Czech Republic by midnight today after he was detained on suspicion of denying the Holocaust.
Mr Duke was in Prague on an invitation from a neo-Nazi group to promote the Czech translation of his book 'My Awakening'.
Police took him into custody on Friday on suspicion of denying the Holocaust, which is a crime in the Czech Republic.
Prague’s Charles University also banned Mr Duke from giving a lecture there on Friday. He was scheduled to give lectures over the weekend in both Prague and the country’s second-largest city of Brno.
