US President Donald Trump ordered Jakiw Palij's deportation - 25 years after investigators first accused him of lying about his wartime past to get into the country - but officials in Germany say there is still insufficient evidence to prosecute him.

His case could be the last US deportation of a world war two-era, war-crimes suspect….

Former Nazi concentration camp guard, Jakiw Palij has been flown from New York to Germany after a 25 year battle in the US over his status.

For years Germany refused to accept the 95-year-old, as he never had German nationality.

Now he's been taken to a retirement home in the German town of Ahlen.

You can watch the full report about Jakiw Palij in the video above.
