Afrin aftermath: German court convicts 4 PKK-linked arsonists

Thursday 18:11 GMT

A German court has jailed four young men for attacks on Turkish properties near Hanover in support of the outlawed Kurdish PKK.

The three Syrians and an Iraqi of Kurdish and Yazidi origins and aged between 21 and 24 were each jailed for terms of more than two years by a special state security court in Germany's northern Lower Saxony state on Wednesday. The verdicts stem from bids last year to set ablaze a car that bore a sticker "Ataturk" — a reference to Turkey's 1923 founder — and a building used by Turkish shop proprietors in Garbsen, a city of 63,000 on Hanover's northwestern outskirts.
