Former SS officer Siert Bruins, 92, has appeared in court in Germany accused of murdering a Dutch resistance fighter some 70 years ago.

He could face a life sentence if found guilty over the death of Aldert Klaas Dijkema in September 1944.

The trial - which is taking place in the western town of Hagen - is one of the last of its kind in Germany.
