Australia bars web site denying Holocaust
A court in Australia has ordered the removal of material from an internet web site that expresses doubt that the Holocaust ever occurred.

The court said the material questioning whether millions of Jews were killed by the Nazis during World War II violated Australia's race laws.

The German-born teacher, Frederick Toben, said on his web site it was unlikely that there had been gas chambers at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

Mr Toben has previously spent seven months in a German prison for inciting racial hatred.

He said he would appeal against the Australian court ruling.
