Soldiers’ victim still in hospital

The homeless man beaten unconcious by nine Dutch soldiers will remain in hospital for observation until the weekend, a military police spokesman said on Friday.

Four of the soldiers, including the two women, have been released from custody but remain suspects. Defence minister Eimert van Middelkoop has told the nine they face being discharged.
