NPR's Philip Davis reports on a charge by the British that Switzerland turned over only a small part of the gold it was holding from the German Nazis during World War Two. The Foreign Office said the Swiss paid out only a little more than a tenth of all the gold thought to be in Swiss vaults. Switzerland declined to comment and deferred to a government commission being set up to examine the war-time activities of Swiss Banks.
