From BBC News:

An Ohio man accused by German officials of Nazi war crimes is set to be held by US authorities ahead of his deportation to Germany, his lawyer says.

John Demjanjuk, 89, is accused being an accessory to the deaths of some 29,000 people at the Sobibor death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland in World War II.

His family have claimed that Mr Demjanjuk, who is bed-ridden, is too unwell to be deported.

Lawyers for Mr Demjanjuk have filed an appeal against the deportation order.  More at BBC News.
