Swiss officials are seeking the arrest of a convicted Nazi collaborator who fled France days before his appeal. Maurice Papon, sentenced in France last year to 10 years in jail for helping deport Jews to Nazi concentration camps, fled over the Alps last week to the southwestern Swiss resort of Martigny, the officials added. After France issued an arrest warrant Thursday, the Swiss officials said they would attempt to track down Papon.
