SEVEN HILLS, Ohio, April 10 (UPI) -- A U.S. immigration appeals board denied an emergency stay of deportation for a man who allegedly served as a guard at a Nazi death camp.

John Demjanjuk, 89, of Seven Hills, Ohio, filed a motion with the Board of Immigration Appeals in Falls Church, Va., saying his ill health prevents him from traveling, Newsnet5, Cleveland, reported Friday.

Demjanjuk, whose motion was denied by the board, is wanted in Germany on 29,000 counts of acting as an accessory to murder after he allegedly served as a guard at a Nazi death camp in Poland in 1943.

The suspect's planned deportation was delayed April 3 when he received a reprieve after telling U.S. authorities that reopening his case would amount to torture because of his poor health.
