German tax crackdown angers Switzerland

Efforts by German inspectors to trace tax evader's money in Switzerland are causing tensions between the two nations.

    German politicans are often critical of Greeks for not paying their taxes, but tax inspectors in Germany say about one in ten Germans evades tax.

    Many of them hide their cash away in Swiss bank accounts.

    And efforts by the German inspectors to follow the money to Switzerland are causing tensions between the two countries.
