Iranian President Hassan Rowhani on Tuesday condemned the Holocaust as "reprehensible" in a new sign of a radical change by the Tehran government.
"Any crime that happens in history against humanity, including the crime the Nazis created toward the Jews, is reprehensible and condemnable," the newly elected leader told CNN in an interview.
"Whatever criminality they committed against the Jews we condemn. The taking of human life is contemptible," he said, according to the US broadcaster's translation.
