An alleged Nazi war criminal ordered extradited to Israel to face charges he murdered thousands of Jews at a Polish death camp was deported, authorities said. John Demjanjuk, 65, a retired auto worker whose legal battles began a decade ago, will be tried on charges stemming from his alleged role at the Treblinka death camp in Poland. Demjanjuk faces a possible death sentence if convicted of the World War II atrocities, said Israeli Justice Minister Moshe Nissim.
