Woman accused of aiding Nazi mass murder

Named in local media as Irmgard F, a 95 year old woman who worked for part of a Nazi concentration camp has been charged with aiding and abetting mass murder in north Germany.

The woman, a former secretary for the SS commandant of Stutthof, lives in a care home in Pinneberg near Hamburg and is charged in relation to "more than 10,000 cases".

Stutthof was a brutal camp which was responsible for approximately 65,000 prisoner deaths during World War Two.

It is yet unclear whether she will face trial, with her role in the murders still being studied.
