"Historian" wanted for Holocaust denial greeted with friendly Nazi salute





An Australian revisionist historian wanted in Germany for alleged Holocaust denial was greeted in court with a Nazi salute from the public gallery.

Dr Fredrick Toben, 64, appeared before City of Westminster Magistrates' Court for an extradition hearing.

He was arrested by Scotland Yard's extradition unit as he passed through London's Heathrow airport on October 1.

Toben, who is fighting extradition, was remanded in British custody for at least another week following today's hearing.

As he left the dock, he looked at a small group of supporters in the public gallery, one of whom raised his arm in Nazi gesture.
