Nazi fugitive brought to France for war crimes

Nazi fugitive Klaus Barbie was brought here Saturday to be charged with crimes against humanity. The former German intelligence officer, expelled from Bolivia and handed over to French officials, is accused of responsibility for 1, 000 killings and 10,000 deportations carried out here from 1942 to 1944.

Reopening of the case of Mr. Barbie, who used the pseudonym Klaus Altmann in Bolivia, is expected to shed light on the mystery of who betrayed French war hero Jean Moulin to the Nazis.
