Nazi guard sentenced to five years jail

A GERMAN court has convicted 91-year-old John Demjanjuk of thousands of counts of acting as an accessory to murder as a Nazi death camp guard.

The Munich state court did not immediately give the reasons behind its conviction today of the retired Ohio autoworker.

Demjanjuk sat in a wheelchair before the judges as they announced their verdict, but showed no reaction.

The court sentenced him to five years in prison. It was not immediately how much credit he would get for time already served.

Demjanjuk’s defence has said it would appeal a conviction.
