Worlds most wanted Nazi held in Hungary

BUDAPEST Hungarian authorities detained and put under house arrest on Wednesday a 97-year-old who tops the Simon Wiesenthal Centers wanted list of suspected Nazi war criminals.

Laszlo Csatary,accused of organising the deportation to their deaths of some16,000Jewsfromaghettoinpresent-day Slovakia in World War II,protested his innocence.We have to make sure that this man remains alive and is able to stand trial, state prosecutor Tibor Ibolya said.One of his arguments in his defence is that he was obeying orders.

Clutching a plastic bag,dressed in a grey jacket and surprisingly sprightly for his age,Csatary said nothing as he was whisked away in a car by two friends or relatives.

This followed his early morning arrest in the Hungarian capital Budapest and several hours of questioning by an investigating magistrate at a military prosecution office.Csatary,full name Laszlo Csizsik-Csatary,helped run the Jewish ghetto in Kosice,a town now in Slovakia personally visited in April 1944 by Adolf Eichmann,a key figure in the Nazi's Final Solution,the Wiesenthal Center says.

While there between 1941 and 1944 Csatary beat,brutalized and sent thousands of Jews to their deaths in Ukraineandtothegaschambersatthe Auschwitz camps.AGENCIES
