Illness Suspends 89-Year-Old Suspected Nazi Guard's Trial





John Demjanjuk's trial in Germany was postponed Wednesday after doctors reported that the 89-year-old defendant was experiencing medical problems.

Presiding Judge Ralph Alt said the doctors at the prison hospital where Demjanjuk is being held reported he was suffering from dangerously low hemoglobin levels and needed treatment.

However, doctors thought the proceedings would be able to resume Thursday as scheduled, Alt said.
