Report: Demjanjuk could face more death camp charges

BERLIN - John Demjanjuk, convicted this year for his role in killing 28,000 Jews in the Sobibor Nazi death camp, may be prosecuted for similar crimes at another camp, a newspaper report said.
"There is initial suspicion based on a report," Gerhard Heindl, state prosecutor for the prosecution office in Bavaria's Weiden was quoted as saying in Saturday's edition of the Der Tagesspiegel newspaper.The allegations -- brought by two figures who were involved in the Sobibor case -- refer to his time as a guard at the Flossenbuerg camp from October 1943 to December 1944, the newspaper said. The two men say that during Demjanjuk's time in the camp 4,974 people were killed.
