Holocaust survivor and scholar Elie Wiesel told jurors Tuesday that he was shocked to learn the man accused of accosting him was linked to a movement that denies millions of Jews were killed during World War II.

Wiesel testified for a second day at the trial of Eric Hunt, 24, who is accused of dragging the 79-year-old Nobel laureate off an elevator at San Francisco's Argent Hotel in February 2007.

Hunt, of Vernon, N.J., has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of attempted kidnapping, elder abuse, false imprisonment, battery, stalking and hate crimes. Hunt's attorney has described his client as mentally ill and not anti-Semitic.
