Donald Trump denies mocking disabled reporter

Republican presidential contender Donald Trump has denied mocking a disabled New York Times reporter during a campaign address earlier this week.
Mr Trump flailed his arms while referring to an article about the 9/11 attacks by Serge Kovaleski, who suffers from a congenital joint condition.
But the politician insisted he did not know what the reporter looked like.

He tweeted that he simply was "showing a person grovelling to take back a statement made long ago".
"I have no idea who Serge Kovaleski is, what he looks like or his level of intelligence," he said in a statement.
"I merely mimicked what I thought would be a flustered reporter trying to get out of a statement he made long ago.
"I have tremendous respect for people who are physically challenged and have spent tens of thousands of dollars throughout buildings all over the world on making them handicapped accessible and ADA (American Disability Act) compliant."
He also accused the New York Times of being "dishonest" and "trying to make a story out of nothing".
