An Afghan refugee has been charged in Germany with murdering an American soldier while fighting with the Taliban in his homeland.
Identified only as Abdol Moghada S., 20, he is also charged with the attempted murder of two other US troops wounded in the same ambush.
He was arrested at an asylum seekers home near to Traunstein in February this year and will stand trial in Munich in the autumn.
Moghada is alleged to have joined the Taliban in the Logar province in 2013 and carried out attacks on military convoys in 2013 and 2014. The charges stem from the latter.
