Seven refugees from Syria and Libya are on trial after they allegedly set a homeless man on fire on Christmas Day in Berlin.
According to the BBC, six are charged with attempted murder, accused of setting fire to newspaper with which the man had covered himself. The seventh is charged with failing to assist the Polish man, who was saved by passers-by after the attackers had fled.
The violent attack was captured on CCTV cameras.
The migrants are reportedly between 16 and 21 years old and are said to have arrived in Germany between 2014 and 2016.
A 21-year-old Syrian is the supposed ring leader of the group and is accused of lighting a handkerchief and placing it near the man's head, and then running away as the flames spread to the man's backpack and a plastic bag.
Six of the suspects surrendered immediately after CCTV images of the attack was released, but the ring leader was arrested near his home.
If found guilty he will only face a minimum of three years in prison.
