The United States topped a list of nations prosecuting suspected Nazis. In its annual report on the search for Nazis, the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles said the United States and its Office of Special Investigations ranked first in targeting alleged Nazis between April 1, 2003 and March 31 of this year. Canada and Germany were grouped together next, while Austria, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland were in the next category. Those who refused to pursue suspected Nazis included Colombia, Norway, Romania, Sweden and Venezuela.
