An 88-year-old German has been charged with involvement in one of the most infamous World Two massacres at the village of Oradour-sur-Glane in central France.

Dortmund state prosecutor said the accused was among six men still facing prosecution.

Six hundred and forty two people were murdered by SS troops, many in the local church.

Twenty soldiers were convicted in the 1950s but were later released.
