Argentina will not accept the remains of Erich Priebke, the last survivor of the Nazi military officers convicted over one of Italy's worst wartime atrocities,  who died on Friday in Rome at the age of 100, AFP reported.

"Foreign Minister Hector Timerman has given the order not to accept the slightest move to allow the return of the body of Nazi criminal Erich Priebke to our country," AFP quoted the Argentine foreign ministry writing in a tweet.

"Argentines will not accept this kind of affront to human dignity."
