German prosecutors Tuesday called for a six-year jail sentence for John Demjanjuk, 90, accused of helping to murder 27,900 Jews during his alleged time as a Nazi death camp guard.

Prosecutor Hans-Joachim Lutz said there was "no reasonable doubt" that the Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk participated in the Holocaust and that he worked at the Sobibor death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland for six months in 1943.
