Dutch-born Nazi war criminal Klaas Carel Faber has died in Germany at the age of 90.

Faber, who served in an SS unit, was second on the Simon Wiesenthal Centre list of most-wanted Nazi criminals.

He was sentenced to death in 1947 for the deaths of 22 Jews at the Westerbork transit camp but his term was later commuted to life.

Faber escaped in 1952, was given German citizenship and died in Bavaria, where he had been living.
