Conference Will Feature Debate on Holocaust

From Times Wire Reports

Iran said it would sponsor a conference to debate scientific evidence of the Holocaust on the heels of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's assertion that the Nazis' World War II slaughter of 6 million European Jews was a myth.

Those remarks, along with assertions that Israel should be wiped off the map, sparked international condemnation and heightened the Tehran government's isolation.

No date or location of the conference was disclosed.
