A 98-year-old Hungarian man has died awaiting trial on charges of torturing Jews and helping send them to Auschwitz in World War Two, his lawyer said on Monday.

What does it take to catch a Nazi nowadays? Who makes the list? What kind of heinous act warrants first place? With a recent capture, these questions become even more pressing.
Hungarian prosecutors on Tuesday charged a 98-year-old man who tops the Nazi-hunting Simon Wiesenthal Center’s wanted list with war crimes, saying he had helped to deport Jews to Auschwitz in World War Two.
Slovak police reportedly have found a witness to corroborate charges against Laszlo Csatary, an alleged Hungarian war criminal.

Suspected war criminal Laszlo Csatary of Hungary will not be charged with the murder of 300 Jews in 1941, prosecutors in Budapest said.
