The body of Nazi war criminal Erich Priebke, who died last week in Italy aged 100, should be sent to Germany and incinerated, the head of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre said in an interview.
Efraim Zuroff, who heads the Jewish Nazi-hunting organisation, told La Stampa daily's Monday edition that Germany had the "best laws" to avoid the funeral becoming a neo-Nazi rally.
"The best thing would be to send the body back to Germany for it to be incinerated," Zuroff said.
"That would be the most efficient way to leave no trace of a Nazi criminal like Priebke," he said.
