Nazi war criminal speaks from beyond grave

Footage has been released in which deceased Nazi war criminal, Erich Priebke, maintains he was just following orders.

    A video statement from the convicted Nazi war criminal, Erich Priebke, was released by his lawyer, a week after his death.

    Erich Priebke was convicted of taking part in one of the worst atrocities in Italy during the second world war, but always claimed he was a victim too.
