Commandos freed by Austrian court

Nine commandos who had been charged with taking part in a street brawl in the resort of Zell am See were found not guilty by an Austrian court on Tuesday.

The fight happened in October 2007. The nine had always maintained their innocence.
The court freed the nine after saying there was no evidence on which to convict them, news agency ANP reported.
