A German court has cleared the way for a murder trial to proceed against the only surviving member of a neo-Nazi group. Beate Zschäpe is charged with helping to kill 10 people, most of them of Turkish descent.
Germany is set to re-examine almost 750 cases of killings or attempted killings to see if the suspects had far-right motives. This follows a scandal over 10 murders that were only belatedly traced to a neo-Nazi cell.
Police officer Michele Kiesewetter was the last of ten victims of the German right-wing terrror group, NSU. A court in Munich has begun to hear witnesses to find out why she was killed. DW’s Marcel Fürstenau reports.
Hip-hop has morphed from a creation in New York’s subculture of underprivileged youth into a global movement. In Germany, it has a long tradition of addressing problems drawn from immigrant youth culture.
Relatives of NSU victims criticized the official version of what went wrong investigating the far-right terror cell. Institutional racism - not individual mistakes - are the problem, says lawyer Sebastian Scharmer.
