September 15, 2010 03:53:47 GMT


TV star Donald Trump has slammed allegations he offered to buy a section of Ground Zero in New York to garner publicity, insisting he doesn't need "the limelight". The property tycoon made his bid after religious leaders outraged the families of many victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks by proposing to build a mosque close to the site.

Hundreds of locals protested the plans on Saturday, September 11 - the ninth anniversary of the tragedy - and Trump tried to head off the proposal by offering to buy the location at a 25 per cent mark-up. His bid was rejected and "The Apprentice" host was accused by an attorney representing Hisham Elzanaty, who's part of the investment group, of making the offer to raise his own profile.
