A week after principle NSU suspect Beate Zschäpe made her first statement to the court, another defendant broke his silence. Ralf Wohlleben has denied supplying weapons to the NSU that were used in a series of killings.
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.
The closing statements in the trial of the NSU right-wing terror cell are starting in Munich. A sentence could come later this year. DW answers five key questions from one of Germany's most high-profile neo-Nazi cases.
