Girl sentenced for swastika lie

A German girl who won a "civic courage" award for allegedly defending an immigrant child from neo-Nazis has been found guilty of inventing the story.

The 18-year-old - named as Rebecca K - had carved a swastika on her own thigh, the court concluded, rejecting her claim that neo-Nazis had done it.

In February she had received an award from a Berlin association campaigning against far-right violence.

She claimed four men had attacked her last November in the town of Mittweida.

In its ruling on Friday the court in Hainichen, eastern Germany, ordered her to do 40 hours of community service.
