Austria: Man convicted of glorifying Nazi ideas


VIENNA (AP) An Austrian court has convicted a man of glorifying Nazi ideology and sentenced him to two years in prison.

The court in the southern city of Klagenfurt found the 85-year-old man, who was not identified, guilty Wednesday of "re-engaging" in Nazi-era beliefs.

The prosecution had accused him, among other things, of glorifying Adolf Hitler and Nazi beliefs in two books. The Austria Press Agency said the man is a veteran of the SS, which acted as a special police force during Nazi times.

Austrian law bans the glorification of Hitler and the Nazi era, as well as attempts to diminish, deny or justify the Holocaust.
