A court in Freiburg is due to deliver its verdict in the case of an asylum seeker who has admitted to raping and murdering a student in Germany in 2016. Hussein K, thought to be from Afghanistan, came to the country without papers in November 2015.
An Indian court denied the appeals of three men convicted of a 2012 gang rape who wanted their death sentences lifted. The gang rape of a medical student sparked outrage in India and led to harsher sex crime penalties.
The verdict is part of the wider Staufen case concerning the sexual abuse of a 9-year-old boy. Two other men have already been convicted as part of a trial that has horrified the country and more hearings are scheduled.
Hussein K., who sought asylum in Germany, has received a life sentence for a crime that made international headlines. He had previously been convicted of assaulting a woman in Greece, but was released from prison early.
An Iraqi refugee suspected of involvement in the killing of a 14-year-old girl has fled Germany, police said. A 35-year-old Turkish suspect had been arrested but was later released.
