Germany may seek accused Nazi guard living in US

Breaking News

Germany's highest criminal court turned over to Munich prosecutors on Thursday the case against a retired Ohio auto worker accused of serving as a Nazi death camp guard, paving the way for his possible extradition from the United States for trial.

Munich prosecutors will now decide whether there is enough evidence of John Demjanjuk's alleged involvement in the deaths of 29,000 Jews at Sobibor camp to charge him and request that he be returned to Germany for trial, spokesman Anton Winkler said. Demjanjuk, 88, lives in suburban Cleveland.
