Racism row hits Republican hopeful

Ron Paul under fire over controversial commentaries published under his name several years ago.

    Republican US presidential hopeful Ron Paul is facing fresh allegations of being racist and homophobic.

    In the 1980s and '90s, newsletters published under the congressman's name included disparaging comments on minorities. But Paul says that he did not write the statements and denies holding those beliefs.

    Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett reports from Washington DC.
