Alleged Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk has lost his bid to get the US Supreme Court to stop his deportation to Germany, where an arrest warrant accuses him of 29,000 counts of accessory to murder during World War II. Justice John Paul Stevens on Thursday denied, without comment, Demjanjuk's plea to intervene in his case. The 89-year-old retired autoworker, his family and his lawyer say he's in poor health and too frail to be sent overseas.
