Brothers who beat up waiter in Prague on attempted murder charge

Two brothers from The Hague are appearing in court in Prague on Monday accused of attempting to kill a waiter in the Czech capital.

Arash and Armin N. have been held in custody since the incident a year ago, which left the victim in hospital for three weeks. The brothers face up to 18 years in jail if convicted of attempted murder.

The waiter was reportedly attacked when he asked a stag party group to leave a pavement terrace where they were drinking beer. Seven people were arrested, three of whom were given suspended sentences and banned from returning to the Czech Republic for five years.

Two others were acquitted after it became clear from video footage that they had tried to break up the group.
