`Camp guard' fires on police

A man who was accused of being a Nazi death camp guard fired at reporters and police outside his home before he was shot in the leg by police. The US Justice Department had filed papers seeking to strip Michael Kolnhofer, 79, of his naturalised US citizenship, alleging he concealed his concentration camp ties when he applied for citizenship in 1952.

Mr Kolnhofer waved a gun at reporters, yelling at them to leave. When police were called to the scene, he fired shots and police returned fire. He was shot at least once in the leg and taken to the University of Kansas Medical Center.
