RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has called the Holocaust "the ugliest crime humanity has known in modern history."
His comments, published Sunday by the Palestinian official news agency WAFA, marked a rare acknowledgment by an Arab leader of Jewish suffering during the Nazi genocide. Some 6 million Jews perished in the Holocaust.
Abbas' comments were published just hours before Israel's annual memorial for Holocaust victims.
