- BERLIN (AP) -- German prosecutors
said Tuesday that they have charged far-rightist Ernst Zundel with incitement
to racial hatred.
- Mr. Zundel, who was extradited from Canada earlier this
year, is accused of spreading anti-Semitism and denying the Holocaust,
partly in texts distributed via the Internet, prosecutors in the southwestern
city of Mannheim said.
- Mr. Zundel is "known internationally as a leader
of the right-wing scene," the prosecutors said in a statement listing
14 cases of alleged incitement to racial hatred.
- He was arrested in March on his arrival in Germany after
losing a long legal battle to head off his extradition. He had been detained
in Toronto since 2003 under Canadian anti-terrorism laws. Both Canadian
and U.S. authorities rejected his applications for citizenship.
