SAVERGNE - A 38-year-old French chemical engineer was sentenced on Thursday to one year in prison and fined 10,000 euros (14,600 dollars) for Holocaust denial.

Vincent Reynouard, who lives in Belgium, was convicted for writing a 16-page pamphlet in 2005 entitled "Holocaust? The Hidden Facts."

The work sent to museums and city halls across France described as "an old propaganda theme" the death of six million Jews during World War II, saying such an extermination was "impossible."

It was the heaviest sentence handed down to date for Holocaust denial in France.
