Nazi row bishop leaves Argentina


A British bishop embroiled in a row over Holocaust denial has flown out of Argentina.

Richard Williamson was swiftly moved through the Argentine capital's Ezeiza airport.

Local TV showed the bishop raising a clenched fist to a reporter's face, then pushing him into a pole with his shoulder as he moved past, the Associated Press news agency said.
