A German court has put on trial two Syrian men accused of war crimes for the Syrian state.
It is thought to be the world’s first trial examining the use of torture under the leadership of President Bashar al-Assad.
The men had fled to Germany as refugees amid the continuing civil war but were arrested in 2019.
