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.
A far-right terror group hounded Germany's foreign residents for over a decade without the public knowing about the crime series. A week-long TV event now aims to shed light on the NSU murders.
Three defense lawyers for Beate Zschäpe have petitioned to be relieved of their duties a day before their client takes the stand. She is a member of a German neo-Nazi group accused of racist killings.
Four Germans have gone on trial on suspicion of planning to detonate nail bombs at a home for asylum seekers. The three men and one woman allegedly formed a far-right terror group, known as as the "Oldschool Society."
In a courtroom statement at her neo-Nazi murder trial, Beate Zschäpe implausibly portrayed herself as the 11th victim, says Barbara John, ombudswoman for the victims of NSU terror, in an interview with DW.
