A 91-year-old former member of the Nazis’ Waffen SS has been charged in Germany with murder for the 1944 slaying of a Dutch resistance fighter who was allegedly executed shortly after he was captured, prosecutors said.

Dutch-born Siert Bruins, who is now German, already served time in the 1980s for the wartime murder of two Jews.
