BERLIN - A former Nazi guard has been charged with 5,230 counts of accessory to murder at the Stutthof concentration camp during the final months of World War II, German prosecutors said Thursday.

Prosecutors in the northern city of Hamburg said Thursday that the 92-year-old suspect, whose name they didn't release, is accused of assisting in the "malicious and cruel" killing of mainly Jewish inmates through his work as an SS guard at the camp between August 1944 and April 1945.
