Serbia on Friday requested the extradition of an American citizen accused of committing genocide and other crimes as a Nazi officer during World War II.

Serbia's justice minister on November 26 formally requested the extradition of Peter Egner, 86, who lives in a retirement community outside of Seattle, Washington.

Egner, a Yugoslavia native, is accused of joining in April 1941 the Nazi-controlled Security Police and Security Service in German-occupied Belgrade, a Nazi mobile killing unit that participated in the mass murder of more than 17,000 Serbian civilians during World War II.
