Oxford invitation draws fire

Trevor Phillips, chairman of Britain's Equality and Human Rights Commission, said Irving never should have been invited, AP reported.
Irving served a prison sentence in Austria from February to December 2006 denying the Holocaust.
Protests are expected outside the society on Monday, where Irving plans to attend the Free Speech Forum, along with Nick Griffin, the leader of the Britain's far-right British National Party (BNP).
The BNP has opposed immigration and been accused of promoting race riots in northern England between whites and South Asian immigrants.
