University of Florida braces for alt-right's Richard Spencer

Authorities in the US state of Florida are preparing for the appearance of white nationalist Richard Spencer at one of its universities.

Spencer, director of the National Policy Institute, a Virginia-based white supremacist think-tank, is slated to speak at Universtiy of Florida (UF) in Gainesville on Thursday.

It will be the alt-right leader's first major public appearance since a violent protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, in May in which one woman was killed.
