Suspected former Auschwitz guard detained


German police have arrested a suspected former Auschwitz death camp guard.

Prosecutors in Stuttgart said a 93-year-old had been detained amid “strong suspicion” that he was involved in murder there.

Nazi-hunting group Simon Wiesenthal named him as Hans Lipschis – fourth on its list of most wanted Nazi criminals.

Lipschis told a German newspaper last month that he had been a cook in the camp and had left to fight on the Eastern Front.
