A German court has convicted 91-year-old John Demjanjuk of acting as an accessory to murder as a Nazi death camp guard.

Demjanjuk was accused of having helped to murder almost 30,000 Jews at the Sobibor death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland in 1943.

He was sentenced to five years in prison, but will be released pending a possible appeal.
