Austrian baker apologises for swastika cakes
The baker is under investigation for icing cakes with Nazi symbols.

Vienna: An Austrian baker, under investigation for icing cakes with Nazi symbols, has apologised to the head of a Holocaust awareness group for causing offence.

The cake-maker met with the head of the Austria Mauthausen Committee (MKOe), which has called for the bakery to be banned.

"I called him because from media reports I got the impression that he knew what he had done was wrong and that he was sorry for it," MKOe head Willy Mernyi said in a statement on the committee's website.

Austrian law bans the use of Nazi symbols. The baker has said he was only making what a customer wanted.

At the meeting, Mernyi gave the baker a book about the Mauthausen concentration camp and in return was presented with a traditional cake decorated with Jewish and Christian symbols.
