Teens stand trial over Munich attack

The German trial of three Swiss teenagers accused of brutally attacking randomly selected people in Munich last summer is set to begin on Monday.

Front-page news at the time, the event spurred calls by a shocked public on both sides of the border for a clampdown on juvenile violence.

Within the space of half an hour during the early hours of July 1 the Zurich youths, who were visiting Munich on a school outing, physically assaulted five men, one of whom was handicapped. One man was trampled almost to death.

“We just wanted to have a little fun,” one of the teens said later.
