Man Faces Trial for Disputing Holocaust (France)





LYON, France -- A French far-right leader and member of the European Parliament went on trial Tuesday over remarks in which he questioned the existence of Nazi gas chambers.

Bruno Gollnisch, the No. 2 in France's National Front party, is accused of "disputing a crime against humanity" in the trial in Lyon in southeast France.

A verdict is expected Wednesday. He faces up to one year in prison if convicted.
