    Eight suspected Nazi war criminals who worked at a concentration camp in Gdansk, Poland, have been identified, according to German police, NBC News reported. 

    Police told NBC News they identified four men and four women, all in their 80s or 90s, who worked at the former Stutthof concentration camp. The male suspects worked as guards while the women were employed as typists or phone operators. 

    Local prosecutors will assess if there is enough evidence against the eight suspects to bring charges. Thousands of people were killed by Nazis in gas chambers and with neck shots at the camp between June and August 1944. 

    Investigators are investigating former concentrations camps Auschwitz and Majdanek and recently expanded their search for former Nazi concentration camps Bergen-Belsen and Neuengamme.

    Airlines Reading, Responding to Social Media Rants

    [NATL-DFW] Airlines Reading, Responding to Social Media Rants
    A new study says airlines are reading posts made by customers complaining over delayed or canceled flights and poor service, and are responding to those messages. Dallas-based Southwest Airlines has a team tracking Twitter, Facebook and other online sites 24 hours a day. When a customer vents about a problem, a representative reaches out to them. "The approach is really how can we help, wait a minute we hate to hear that.... so what is going on, give us some information and let's see what we can do to straighten this out," said Lisa Goode, with Southwest Airlines. Social media teams help airlines by rebooking customers or by helping keep them more calm by relaying information when problems crop up. (Published Thursday, Sept. 29, 2016)
