Demjanjuk in hospital due to heart problems
Alleged concentration camp guard John Demjanjuk was rushed from a Munich courtroom into a hospital on Tuesday due to heart problems, DPA reported.
The 90-year-old experienced chest pains as he was being driven from prison to the court where his trial was set to resume. The hearing, in which an American expert was to verify documents, was postponed.
A Munich hospital was to check whether Demjanjuk had a heart attack or was experiencing circulatory problems.
"This is a purely precautionary measure," said the doctor who has been looking after Demjanjuk since the start of the trial last year.
He said there were no signs that Demjanjuk was acutely ill, adding that the trial could likely resume the next day.
The Ukrainian-born man stands accused of having helped to kill 27,900 Jews at Sobibor Nazi death camp in German-occupied Poland in 1943.
Due to Demjanjuk's poor health, he can only attend court for short periods. The trial is expected to continue at least through September.
