The trial of accused neo-Nazi killer Beate Zschäpe and four co-defendants is set to resume in Munich.
More than five years after it began, a trial against members of a neo-Nazi group must restart from the very beginning. The case was provisionally closed because it ran so long, the presiding judge went into retirement.
The seven neo-Nazis arrested in the German state of Saxony are facing more serious charges than previously expected. After some bad press, German prosecutors are now much quicker to reach for terrorism charges.
Germany's state prosecutor has ordered the arrest of seven men charged with forming a far-right terror group known as Revolution Chemnitz. The men are accused of planning attacks on migrants in eastern Germany.
Beate Zschäpe and two other men were allegedly members of the neo-Nazi NSU cell which murdered minorities and carried out a string of bombings. The case has shocked Germany since it began in 2013.
