German investigators uncover nine new cases of Nazi war crimes

Investigators in Germany have handed over nine new cases of war crimes committed by Nazis during World War Two to authorities, for possible prosecution of the perpetrators.

Die Tageszeitung reported this week that the cases all involved guards at concentration camps run by the Nazis at Auschwitz, Mauthausen, Buchenwald and Ravensbrueck.

All of the accused are in their early to mid-90s, reports the AP.

Several Nazi war criminals have been successfully prosecuted in recent years.
