The trial of suspected Nazi John Demjanjuk has been delayed due to his failing health.
The 89-year-old Ukrainian is charged of being an accessory to the murder of 27,900 Jews at the Sobibor death camp.
Presiding Judge Ralph Alt said in a court statement that Demjanjuk had a high fever which had continued to rise despite medication, and that the trial would be delayed until December 21.
Doctors who examined him, two hours before the court hearing in Munich was about to continue, said he had an unidentified infection and a fever.
