KLM may probe Nazi flights

Dutch airline KLM may seek an independent investigation into whether it flew Nazi fugitives to the Argentine after the end of World War II, Reuters reported on Tuesday.

A Dutch tv documentary last week showed archive documents which it claimed proved that KLM helped Nazis with false papers to escape via Switzerland.
KLM spokesman Bart Koster told Reuters the airline has never found any specific information about such allegations but said KLM is in talks with other parties about initiating an independent inquiry.
