'Nazi' accused faces extradition (Australia)





The Australian Federal Court has ruled that an 88-year-old man can be extradited to Hungary to face accusations of murder.

Hungary's government accuses Charles Zentai of killing Jewish teenager Peter Balazs in Budapest in 1944.

At the time, Mr Zentai was a warrant officer in the Hungarian army, then allied to Nazi Germany.

Mr Zentai says he was not in Budapest at the time. He can still appeal to Australia's High Court.
