BUDAPEST, Hungary — Alleged Hungarian war criminal Laszlo Csatary waves as he leaves the Budapest Prosecutor's Office after he was questioned by detectives on charges of war crimes during WWII and prosecutors ordered his house arrest yesterday. Csatary is accused of being a war criminal by the Jerusalem affiliate of the Vienna based Simon Wiesenthal Centre. The centre says Csatary as a senior officer of the Hungarian gendarmerie of the then Hungarian town of Kassa, today Kosice, Slovakia, was responsible for the murdering of 15,700 Jewish Hungarians by organising their deportations to the Nazi death camp of Auschwitz in 1944. According to the prosecutor's office Csatary denied the charges. (Photo: AP)
