The trial of Ernst Zundel, an apologist for Adolf Hitler who was deported from Canada to face charges in Germany, resumed Wednesday with the presiding judge rejecting defense motions seeking his removal for alleged bias. Judge Ulrich Meinerzhagen rejected the three motions, filed last week, citing another court's ruling that had found there was "no reason to doubt the neutrality of the court."

He faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
