Death camp guard's trial extended

The trial of alleged Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk will not wrap until September, months longer than had been anticipated, prosecutors said on Wednesday. The trial in Munich of the 89-year-old on charges of helping to kill 27,900 Jews and others during the Second World War began Nov. 30, 2009. Several sessions have been curtailed or postponed due to Demjanjuk's health complaints. The prosecution says it has an SS identity card proving he was at a training camp for guards and that he was then transferred to work at the Sobibor death camp.
