MADRID — A Spanish judge has indicted John Demjanjuk on charges of being an accessory to genocide and crimes against humanity while serving as a Nazi concentration camp guard.

The 90-year-old former Ohio autoworker is being tried in Germany on 28,060 counts of accessory to murder while a guard at the Nazis' Sobibor death camp. He denies the charges.

Spanish Judge Ismael Moreno has now accused Demjanjuk of working at the Nazi concentration camp in Flossenburg, where Moreno says 155 Spaniards were held, 60 of whom died.

Moreno indicted Demjanjuk in an order dated Jan. 7 and made available Friday by the National Court.

The judge issued a European arrest warrant for Germany to hand over Demjanjuk, presumably after his trial in Germany ends.
