German Chancellor Angela Merkel hit out at Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Tuesday, saying it would be unacceptable to allow a Holocaust denier to get the nuclear bomb.

"A nuclear bomb in the hands of an Iranian president who denies the Holocaust, threatens Israel and denies Israel the right to exist is not acceptable," Merkel said in a rare address to the US Congress.
