Meanwhile in Germany, a 96-year-old former secretary for the SS commander of the Stutthof concentration camp was supposed to go on trial for more than 11,000 counts of accessory to murder, but decided to skip it instead. She left her home near Hamburg in a taxi a few hours before proceedings were to start at the state court in Itzehoe. Officials did pick her up several hours later after the court issued an arrest warrant. The accused woman previously had "announced that she didn't want to come" to court, but the statement did not provide sufficient grounds for detaining her ahead of the trial. Given her age and condition nobody actually thought she'd make a run for it. Prosecutors claim she was part of the apparatus that helped the Nazi's Stutthof camp function during World War II more than 75 years ago. More than 60,000 people were killed there by being given lethal injections of gasoline or phenol directly to their hearts, or being shot or starved. Others were forced outside in winter without clothing until they died of exposure, or were put to death in a gas chamber. The woman will now be jailed throughout the trial provided a doctor gives the okay. (Sky News)
