German police arrest two over murder of Prague taxi driver

Police in Germany have arrested two young men wanted for the murder of a taxi driver in Prague earlier this month. The two, aged 16 and 22, were detained on the basis of an arrest warrant issued by the Czech authorities. They have been remanded in custody. They are accused of murdering the taxi driver, who was 39, in a particularly brutal manner and of robbery. They were on the run from a youth detention facility when the alleged killing took place. A Czech police spokesperson said they would likely be tried in their own country.
