ROME (AFP) - An Italian court plans to try three German World War II army officers for the 1944 massacres of scores of civilians and partisans, a source of the Verona military tribunal said Thursday. A preliminary hearing is set for January 20 for Karl Schaefer, now 100 years old, Karl Weis, 91, and Ernst Plege, 89. A Wehrmacht unit on April 7, 1944, burned down the village of Fragheto, in the central region of Marche, and killed 33 people including 15 women and four young children. Schaefer, who commanded the unit, is charged with aggravated multiple homicide. The other two defendants are accused of executing partisans in another village of the same region, Calanco di Sotto.
