John Demjanjuk has been hospitalized after developing a case of gout, one of his attorneys said Tuesday. The retired Ohio autoworker is being held in Germany on an arrest warrant accusing him of accessory to 29,000 murders as a guard at a Nazi death camp. Demjanjuk was moved Sunday from Munich's Stadelheim prison to the nearby Harlaching clinic to be treated for the ailment, which is caused by an excess of uric acid in the blood, attorney Guenther Maull told The Associated Press. "It was determined that his blood was not as it should be," Maull said. He said Demjanjuk was expected to return to the Stadelheim prison later Tuesday.
