New claims on Ikea founder's Nazi past

A book has claimed that the founder of the IKEA chain, Ingvar Kamprad, had youth ties with Nazi groups for two years longer than he admitted.

Elisabeth Asbrink, a respected Swedish author, has said in 'And in Wienerwald the Trees Remain' that Mr Kamprad joined the Swedish Nazi party in 1943 when he was 17 and was in contact with sympathisers until 195.

A spokesman said Mr Kamprad regards his Nazi ties as the "biggest mistake" of his life.
