Liechtenstein prince angers German Jews

Breaking News

Liechtenstein's Prince Hans-Adam II has angered German Jews by invoking the Holocaust to defend his country's banking secrecy.

Germany's Jewish community - which last year condemned Hans-Adam II's description of modern Germany as a "Fourth Reich" - attacked his latest comments as another insensitive twisting of history.
