GERMANY:




PROSECUTORS CHARGE MAN IN NAZI CAMP ATROCITIES....




     Prosecutors in Germany have charged a 93 year old man with at least 300,000 counts of accessory to murder while a member of Adolph Hitler's SS unit at the Auschwitz concentration camp.


     Prosecutors accuse Oskar Groning from Lower Saxony of having collected money from Nazi victims' luggage on their arrival, which he turned over to SS headquarters in Berlin.


     In 2005, Mr. Groning described to the magazine Der Spiegel his role as tallying money seized from victims, most of them Jewish, but said he didn't commit any crimes.
