Officials in Poland are reviewing documents in an effort to determine whether there is enough evidence to press charges against a 94-year-old Minneapolis man accused of being a Nazi, the Associated Press reported. Officials are trying to determine whether there is enough to request his extradition to Poland, a prosecutor there told the AP.

A lengthy AP investigation published last week reported that Michael Karkoc, 94, gained entry to the U.S. a few years after World War II by covering up his role in a SS-led Ukrainian unit, which has been accused of burning down villages and killing civilians in Poland during the war. The AP reported that evidence indicates Karkoc was at the scenes, but no records tie him directly to committing atrocities.

The story drew international attention and shocked residents in Karkoc's northeast Minneapolis neighborhood.

Karkoc's family has strongly denied that he was a Nazi.
