Demjanjuk trial set for November

The Munich state court has set aside 35 trial days for the process, beginning on 30 November and ending in May 2010.

The 89-year-old retired car worker, who was deported from the US in May, could face 15 years in prison if convicted.

Mr Demjanjuk has denied accusations that he was a guard at the Sobibor death camp and helped murder Jews.

He says he was captured by Germans in his native Ukraine while fighting for the Red Army and kept as a prisoner of war.
