German prosecutors have formally charged John Demjanjuk with 27,900 counts of being an accessory to murder.
Munich prosecutors say in a brief statement that the charges were filed on Monday. There is no immediate word on when a trial of the 89-year-old retired auto worker might start.
Prosecutors accuse Demjanjuk, who was deported from the U.S. in
May, of serving as a guard at the Sobibor camp in Nazi-occupied
Poland during World War II.
Demjanjuk says he was a Red Army soldier who spent World War II as a Nazi prisoner of war and never hurt anyone.
