"A 93-year-old alleged former guard at the Auschwitz extermination camp has been arrested in southern Germany.
Hans Lipschis was taken into custody in Aalen after prosecutors concluded there was "compelling evidence" that he had been complicit in murder.
Mr Lipschis acknowledges he served with the Waffen SS at the camp in occupied Poland, but claims he was only a cook.
Last month, the Simon Wiesenthal Center named him as number four on its list of most-wanted Nazis." [BBC]
