Hungarian prosecutors say they have taken Nazi criminal Laszlo Csatary into custody.

The 97-year-old had been living openly in an apartment in Budapest.

There has been mounting pressure on Hungarian authorities to take action against Csatary from the nazi-hunting Simon Wiesenthal Centre and British newspaper The Sun.

For crimes committed while he was police chief in the Slovakian city of Kosice, Csatary received a death sentence from a Czech court after a trial held in his absence in 1948.
