A former guard at a Nazi concentration camp has been found guilty of playing a part in the killing of thousands of people.

John Demjanjuk has lived in the legal system for decades - first extradited from the US, tried in Israel and convicted in Germany.

He has now been found guilty of accessory to murder at the Sobibor concentration camp.
