Over the course of a decade, the far-right terror group known as the National Socialist Underground is to have killed ten migrants. Suspects Beate Zschäpe and Ralf Wohlleben have kept silent until now. Can their testimony influence the decision?
Prosecutors in one of Germany's most closely-watched trials have demanded that Beate Zschäpe serve a life sentence for her alleged part in a string of neo-Nazi murders. The trial is entering its closing stage.
The trial of the NSU right-wing terror cell will soon reach its conclusion, after beginning more than four years ago. DW answers five key questions from one of Germany's most high-profile neo-Nazi cases.
Germany's federal prosecutor says two alleged accomplices to NSU member Beate Zschäpe provided the murder weapon that was used in a string of racial killings. The neo-Nazi trial is expected to wrap up in a few months.
In their closing arguments, federal prosecutors drove home a description of Zschäpe as directly involved in the NSU's murders and bombings. They rejected Zschäpe's defense that she was dependent on her co-conspirators.
