'Ex Nazi' charged with 58 murders





German prosecutors have charged a 90-year-old alleged former Nazi SS member with the deaths of 58 Jewish forced labourers, officials say.

The man is accused of murdering the workers in Deutsch Schuetzen, an Austrian village, at the end of World War II.

The court has identified the suspect only as a "retiree from Duisburg".

The victims' remains were found in a mass grave in 1995 by the Austrian Jewish association.
