(AP) A Nashville hotel has canceled a conference by the Sharia Awareness Action Network.
The Hutton Hotel, near downtown, says it was concerned the speakers include "extremists" with a history of contentious events.
The "Preserving Freedom Conference" had been scheduled for Nov. 11. The hotel says it has to be, "mindful of the safety, security and peace of mind of its guests."
