"A 97-year-old man was cleared Monday of war crimes charges stemming from a raid by Hungarian forces in Serbia during World War II. Sandor Kepiro had been charged by prosecutors because of his alleged involvement in the killing of some 35 people during an anti-partisan raid in the Serbian city of Novi Sad, then under Hungarian control, on Jan. 23, 1942. ... Kepiro said earlier that his task was to supervise the identification of people being rounded up, but he said he was unaware of the killings until after they had been carried out." (07/18/11)
