John Demjanjuk leaves the court after his verdict in Munich in May 2011.

Former Nazi death-camp guard John Demjanjuk, sentenced to five years in prison last year, has died at the age of 91.

Bavarian state radio reported on March 17 that he died in a retirement home in southern Germany.

The Ukrainian-born Demjanjuk had been found guilty of almost 30,000 counts of accessory to murder.

He was a guard at the Sobobor camp in Poland where more than 27,000 people died during World War II.
