4 Monday, 13 July 2009 London Lite World at a glance Nazicampguardcharged overdeathsof27,900Jews A SUSPECTED Nazi death camp guard was formally charged in Germany today with being an accessory to the murder of 27,900 Jews during the Second World War. A date has yet to be announced for the trial of John Demjanjuk, 89, who has always denied accusations that he was a guard at the Sobibor death camp in Poland. Demjanjuk claims that he was captured by Germans in his native Ukraine while fighting for the Red Army and kept as a prisoner of war. The retired car worker, once dubbed Ivan The Terrible by Holocaust survivors, has been held in a jail in southern Germany since 12 May after he was deported from the US, where he arrived as a refugee in 1952. Efraim Zuroff, the top Nazi-hunter at the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, said: This is an important step forward. The effort to bring Demjanjuk to justice sends a very powerful message that the passage of time in no way diminishes the guilt of the perpetrator. Accused: Demjanjuk Koreandictatorstrickenwithcancer NORTH Korean leader Kim Jong Il has pancreatic cancer which is threatening his life, it was claimed today. The report emerged days after TV footage of the dictator, 67, spurred speculation his health may be worsening following a stroke last year. South Korean TV said he was diagnosed with the cancer around the time of the stroke. There are concerns about a power struggle if he dies without naming a successor.

Britishidiotsgetlostonwalkabout TWO British families who caused a major emergency by getting lost in the Australian bush have been branded idiots. The party, including two women and their children, a 64-year-old granny and a baby, took a stroll in the Blue Mountains near Sydney close to nightfall on Saturday, got lost and spent 12 hours awaiting rescue. The New South Wales premier, Nathan Rees, said the walk was idiotic.

Cops blunder on honeytrap killersBY GEORGINA LITTLEJOHN Close to home: a US navy jet narrowly passes an apartment block in a display during festivities for the Detroit Gold Cup boat race Picture of the day TWO youths involved in the honey- trap murder of a teenager should have been arrested months earlier for a previous stab- bing, it emerged today. Don Carlos Ellis, 18, and Michael Akinfenwa, 17, were lookouts as Shakilus Townsend, 16, was lured to his death by his girlfriend Samantha Joseph, 15. An Independent Police Complaints Commission inquiry has dis- covered the pair should have been held over a knife attack five months before. Their street names, Rugrat and Spekta, were given to police in Croydon but officers failed to trace them and wrongly logged computer details. Shakilus was beaten with base- ball bats and stabbed five times by a masked gang at Thornton Heath, south London, last July. He was targeted after Josephs other boyfriend, gang member Danny McLean, 18, found out she had been cheating on him. She agreed to help him in his plan to kill Shakilus and was filmed travelling with the victim by bus to the murder scene. Ellis, Akinfenwa and five others including Joseph and McLean face life sentences after being found guilty of murder last week.
