Germany's 'sharia police' members to face trial: court
A group of German radical Islamists will face trial for forming "sharia police" street patrols that told people to stop drinking, gambling and listening to music, a court said Tuesday.
The ultra-conservative Muslim group around German Salafist convert Sven Lau sparked public anger with their vigilante patrols in 2014 in the western city of Wuppertal.
A city court last December said the group would not face charges -- but a higher court has now overturned that decision, announcing that eight members of the group could face trial, without setting a date.
