Court queries 'Nazi guard' health

Breaking News

A US appeals court has requested more information on the health of a 89-year-old man due to be deported to Germany on war crimes charges.

The removal of John Demjanjuk was halted by the court shortly after he was removed by federal marshals from his Cleveland, Ohio home.

The Justice Department now has until 23 April to tell the court how it decided Mr Demjanjuk was fit to travel.

The request for health information was made by the 6th Circuit US Court of Appeals two days after Mr Demjanjuk had been arrested at his home and taken to a federal building in Cleveland.
