A new report gives a dozen countries, including Hungary and Canada, failing grades in bringing former Nazis to justice.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, a Nazi-hunting group, gave top grades to Germany.

It is the first time the center has given any country besides the United States an "A'' grade for prosecuting suspected Nazi war criminals.

The director of the center's Israel office, Efraim Zuroff, said Wednesday that Hungary received a failing grade for not imprisoning Dr. Sandor Kepiro, a Hungarian military officer convicted in 1944 in the mass murder of civilians.
