Poland may demand the extradition of Nazi war criminal Alois Brunner from Syria to face trial for causing genocide at Auschwitz-Birkenau. Brunner was a close aide to Adolf Eichmann and is thought to be responsible for transporting some 130,000 Jews to Auschwitz from France, Slovakia and Greece. He is believed to be living in Damascus, which Syria officially denies.
