Beate Zschaepe, member of the neo-Nazi group National Socialist Underground, enters the courtroom before the start of her trial in Munich. The highest-profile neo-Nazi murder trial in Germany in decades opened Monday amid tight security, with the five accused appearing in public for the first time since their arrests more than a year ago. Zschaepe, 38, is accused of complicity in the killings of eight Turks, a Greek and a police officer between 2000 and 2007. If convicted, she faces life imprisonment. She is also charged in connection with at least two bombings and 15 bank robberies.
