An FBI presentation at Quantico, Va., to agents that negatively portrayed devout Muslims, has been discontinued, the Associated Press reported Thursday.

AP, citing a federal law enforcement official, said the lecture was given for just three days in April.

One part of the lecture contended that the more devout Muslim are, the more likely they were to be violent.

FBI spokesman Christopher Allen said changes have been made since the lecture to better comply with FBI standards, AP reported.

The online publication Wired.com first reported on the issue.
