Germans prosecutors have charged a former Nazi death camp guard with participating in the murder of 430,000 Jews and other crimes during the Third Reich.

Samuel Kunz, 88, was informed last week of his indictment on charges including participation in the murder of 430,000 Jews at the Belzec death camp in occupied Poland, prosecutor Christoph Goeke said Wednesday. Kunz is believed to have served as a guard there from January 1942 to July 1943.
