Gruppe S: German far-right group on trial for 'terror plot'

The trial of 11 suspected members of a far-right "terror" group has begun in the German city of Stuttgart. The suspects, aged between 32 and 61, were arrested in February last year. Prosecutors say the 11 men - all Germans - were members of Gruppe S (Group S), which planned attacks on migrants, Muslims and politicians, with the aim of sparking a civil war. A twelfth man, a former police officer, is accused of offering material support to the group. He is also on trial.
