BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 A.M.) – A 29-year-old Syrian man was charged in Germany for torturing pro-government soldiers in Syria between January 2012 and January 2013, the Associated Press reported on Monday evening.

According to the Associated Press, the Syrian man, Mohammad K., took part in torturing two Syrian Arab Army (SAA) soldiers by whipping them with a “cable-like object” while they were unclothed.

The German prosecutors said the Syrian man was “inflicting considerable pain” on the two Syrian Arab Army soldiers during their interrogation.

The suspect was arrested in June and charges have been filed in Stuttgart state court.

Further details about when he arrived in Germany and how German authorities learned of the allegations against him were not immediately available.
