"Most Wanted" Nazi Kepiro Is Nabbed in Hungary; Charged with 1942 Massacre in Novi Sad, Serbia

The BBC website reports today (February 15, 2011) that Hungarian prosecutors have charged former captain Sandor Kepiro with a notorious massacre in the Serbian city of Novi Sad.

More than 1,200 Jewish, Serb, and Roma civilians were murdered over three days by Hungarian forces.

Kepiro is at the top of a list of most wanted Nazis compiled by the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Hundreds of families were rounded up by the Hungarians -- allies of Nazi Germany -- in January 1942 on the banks of the Danube River in Novi Sad and then shot to death.
