Nazi hunters seek German probe of WW2 death squad suspects

BERLIN (Reuters) The Simon Wiesenthal Center has sent the German government a list of 80 people it believes murdered Jews while serving in Nazi death squads in World War Two and who may be still alive, the head of the Israel office of the organisation said. The push for an investigation into members of Einsatzgruppen, or death squads, was triggered by a landmark conviction in 2011 of John Demjanjuk, a guard at the Sobibor death camp, said the Wiesenthal Center's Efraim Zuroff. #facebook #Business #Technology #France #Israel #Mexico #german #article

German govt condemns pictures showing refugees abused

BERLIN (Reuters) The German government on Monday condemned suspected cases of abuse against refugees in which asylumseekers were maltreated by security guards and even forced to lie in a bed filled with vomit. Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said pictures published in German media that appear to show private security guards abusing refugees were repulsive and shocking. Rights groups also criticised the apparent abuses, which evoked the violations by American guards at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq that emerged in 2004 #facebook #India #Business #Japan #Technology #United Kingdom #Latin America #opinion #german

Germany plans tougher controls on wouldbe jihadists

BERLIN (Reuters) The German government plans tougher controls on wouldbe jihadists such as marking personal identity cards to alert border guards that the traveller may be en route to join the Islamic State militant group. An interior ministry spokeswoman said some kind of marking on identity cards could identify suspected jihadists so border guards in Germany or other Schengen countries such as Belgium or the Netherlands could prevent them from leaving. Germans can also use their identity cards to enter Turkey, a main transit point for militants travelling to Syria to join Islamic State, so border guards there could also spot them. #facebook #India #Business #Brazil #Technology #France #Russia #markets #Italy #Argentina #United Kingdom #german
