An 87-year-old former Communist-era camp commander has been blamed for prisoners' deaths in the 1950s, and is now being investigated by prosecutors.

Florian Cormos was the commander of the Columbia prison camp at Cernavoda in eastern Romania for just four months, from December 1952 to March 1953.

Mr Cormos denies the accusations against him.
