Convicted Nazi war criminal John Demjanjuk's request to regain US citizenship was denied Wednesday by an Ohio district court.

Demjanjuk was convicted in May by a Munich court to a five year prison term for assisting in the murder of at least 27,900 Jews as a Nazi guard at the Sobibor extermination camp in Poland. He was released on bail after serving over two years in a German prison.
