BERLIN (AP) รข€" A former SS guard is to go on trial in Germany on charges of accessory to murder for serving at the Nazis' Stutthof concentration camp.

The 94-year-old, who hasn't been identified due to German privacy laws, is accused of working as a guard at the camp from June 1942 to the beginning of September 1944.

Dortmund prosecutor Andreas Brendel said Friday that though he's not linked to a specific crime at the camp, the fact that more than 60,000 people were killed in Stutthof made him an accessory to at least hundreds of the killings.
