Germany has been praised for its efforts to bring suspected Nazi war criminals to justice.
The country has been awarded an “A” grade by the Los Angeles - based Simon Wiesenthal Centre in a new report on the international commitment to tracking down former Nazis.
It is the first time anywhere other than the United States has been given the top mark. The findings are based on the period between April 2009 and March 2010.
However, countries including Hungary and Canada have come under criticism in the new report for failing to prosecute suspected Nazi war criminals.
