German authorities arrested a 93-year-old alleged former guard at the Nazi death camp Auschwitz on murder charges Monday over the death of prisoners on his watch.

Prosecutors in the southwestern state of Baden-Wuerttemberg said the man was believed to have worked at the camp between autumn 1941 and its liberation in 1945.
