Germany Arrests Three Suspected Auschwitz Guards
Now elderly men taken to a prison hospital
Three men aged 88, 92 and 94 have been detained by German authorities on suspicion of being guards at the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz.
The homes of a number of men were raided in three German states, months after prosecutors investigating Nazi-era war crimes announced they were recommending charges against 30 people.
The three men taken into custody have been sent to a prison hospital.
More than 1.1 million people, most of them Jews, were murdered at Auschwitz.
