Prosecutors in Germany have formally charged alleged Nazi war criminal John Demjanjuk with 27,900 counts of being an accessory to murder in World War II. The prosecutors' office in Munich said the charges had been filed on Monday. There was no immediate word on when the trial of the 89-year-old retired car worker, who was deported from the United States in May, might begin. 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.
