Poland wants to extradite from Israel a Polish-born Jew on charges he killed German prisoners in a concentration camp after World War II. Solomon Morel, 83, is accused of killing 1,500 inmates at the Swietochlowiche camp in Poland, the Scotsman, a Scottish newspaper, reported. Israel previously rejected calls to extradite Morel, saying the statute of limitations has expired.
