NAZI hunters are demanding an explanation from Germany as to how "Doctor Death", one of the world's most wanted war criminals, was apparently able to live freely in Egypt for 30 years.
According to an investigation by The New York Times and German TV last week, former SS doctor Aribert Heim had escaped to Egypt in the 1960s, where he converted to Islam and died in 1992 of cancer.
A spokesman for the German foreign ministry said Berlin was taking the issue "very seriously" and that there would be a "thorough investigation."
Finding his remains could be complicated because according to last week's report his body was disposed of in a paupers' grave where a large number of other corpses will have ended up in the intervening 17 years.
