An anti-Islamic Dutch lawmaker's visit to Temple University was cut short after a question and answer session turned nasty.

Geert Wilders was escorted from the Philadelphia university's lecture hall as some in the crowd of several hundred students began shouting jeers at the Dutch politician.

Wilders' previous 30-minute address was met by a mixture of applause and boos Tuesday night at the public university serving about 34,000 students.
