The trial of neo-Nazis charged with a series of racially-motivated murders in Germany has been adjourned for procedural reasons for a week. Relatives of the victims said they were disappointed at the decision.
Public defenders say Beate Zschäpe, the main suspect in the high-profile NSU trial, should be set free. The lead defender accused the court and German authorities of a miscarriage of justice.
The Nazis "were keeping Jews from leaving the country," Jeff Sessions has claimed. Meanwhile, US President Trump doubled-down on false claims about rising crime in Germany due to immigration.
Suspected far-right terrorist Beate Zschäpe could face life in prison for her role in the killings, but the victims' families are disappointed. They hoped the trial would offer more clarity on what really happened.
Federal prosecutors accuse Beate Zschäpe of helping carry out a string of neo-Nazi terror attacks in Germany between 2000 and 2007. The case has been one of the most high-profile neo-Nazi trials in recent years.
