An Ohio man accused of serving as a Nazi death camp guard asked a US immigration court Thursday to stop his ordered deportation to Germany to face possible trial. A German arrest warrant accuses Ukrainian native John Demjanjuk of 29,000 counts of acting as an accessory to murder at the Sobibor camp in occupied Poland during World War II. His lawyer John Broadley on Thursday filed an emergency motion for a stay of removal and a motion to reopen the proceedings, saying that deporting the ill Demjanjuk would be cruel. "What they are planning to do to this old man in the US and Germany will be extremely painful and amounts to torture," he said.
