Police detained an 84-year-old former member of the Nazi SS wanted in Denmark for the assassination of a Danish journalist during World War II, a prosecutor said Thursday. Police detained Soeren Kam, who was born in Denmark but holds German citizenship, at his home in Bavaria on Wednesday, Munich prosecutor Joachim Ettenhofer said. German authorities were acting on a European arrest warrant issued by Denmark. A Munich court will decide next week whether he can be extradited, Ettenhofer said.
