Alleged Nazi guard awaits deportation in Ohio





Alleged Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk (dem-YAHN'-yuk) is marking his 89th birthday in seclusion as he awaits word on an appeal to halt his deportation to Germany.

The retired auto worker from suburban Cleveland says his deportation would amount to torture, given his frail health.

Demjanjuk kept out of sight Friday, as has been the case for years.

His son, John Demjanjuk Jr., says the family is awaiting word on the appeal. The immigration appeals court says nothing has been decided.
