Netherlands calls for arrest of Nazi Klaas-Carel Faber

The Netherlands has issued a European arrest warrant for a Dutch-born Nazi war criminal, Klaas-Carel Faber, now living in Germany. Faber, 88, was sentenced to death in 1947 for the deaths of Jews at the Westerbork transit camp but his term was commuted to life. He escaped in 1952, was given German citizenship and now lives in Bavaria. Local media say it is the first time the Netherlands has issued a European arrest warrant for a war criminal.
