German prosecutors charge Syrian doctor with crimes against humanity

A Syrian doctor has been charged in Germany with crimes against humanity, federal prosecutors said.

Alla Mousa, who came to Germany in 2015, is accused of torturing at least 18 people in military hospitals in Homs and Damascus after the 2011 uprising.

One person was allegedly killed, while the suspect had also tried to make people infertile, prosecutors said on Wednesday.

Mousa was charged with murder, severe bodily harm, attempted bodily harm, and dangerous bodily harm.

He had been practicing medicine in Germany before he was arrested last year, a statement added. READ MORE.
