A German court has decided not to try a 97-year-old former SS guard, on the grounds of ill-health.
The man, who has not been named, is believed to have worked at Majdanek, but the Frankfurt state court ruled he is too sick to face court proceedings.
They cited a medical assessment of the 97-year-old, which had been repeatedly delayed by stays in hospital.
The old National Socialist was charged in 2017 for allegedly serving at the camp in German-occupied Poland between August 1943 and January 1944.
According to the prosecution he was "aware that the people he was guarding would be murdered".
