German prosecutors charged an 82-year-old former SS officer with killing seven Jewish prisoners in 1945. Julius Viel, a retired journalist arrested last October, is accused of shooting the prisoners as they dug anti-tank trenches near the Czech town of Leitmeritz. The prisoners were inmates at Theresienstadt.
