Nine commandos in court in Austria

Nine Dutch commandos will appear in court in Austria on Monday and Tuesday charged with being involved in a fight in Zell am See in October 2007.

The fight, outside a disco, happened during an evening’s leave in the middle of a three-week exercise.
One commando was seriously injured and the others claim they were merely attempting to rescue their friend when they too were attacked by a group of locals.
