Merkel chides Pope for Holocaust controversy
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has called on the Pope to give a clear rejection of Holocaust denial, following the controversial rehabilitation of a bishop. Merkel said she was not satisfied with a clarification of the Vatican's position on the matter. Late last month, Pope Benedict XVI lifted the excommunication on British bishop Richard Williamson after he apologised for inflammatory comments made on Swedish TV. Williamson had questioned whether six million Jews were killed during the Holocaust and denied the use of gas chambers. Several leading German bishops have condemned the German-born Pope's decision and called for Williamson's rehabilitation to be revoked.
Russia rehabilitates last tsar
Russia's Supreme Court has ruled that the country's last tsar, Nicholas II, and his family should be recognised as victims of Soviet repression. Tsar Nicholas, his wife and five children were killed by a Bolshevik revolutionary firing squad in 1918, but they have never been officially recognised as victims until now. The ruling officially rehabilitates the Romanov family and declares groundless the accusations made against them at the time they were killed. The tsar and his family were canonised by the Russian Orthodox Church in 2000.
