A Nazi suspect indicted on charges of involvement in the murders of 430,000 Jews at a death camp has died at his home in Germany aged 89.

Samuel Kunz was third on the Simon Wiesenthal Center's list of most wanted Nazi war crimes suspects and had been due to go on trial early next year, the BBC reports.

He was also accused of personally shooting dead 10 Jews at the Belzec camp, near the city of Lublin in occupied Poland, during 1942-43.
