A bombing attack carried out by three Muslim teenagers in the German city of Essen was a politically motivated crime, according to the charges filed against them.
The three suspects are accused of targeting the Sikh temple where the attack took place because they wanted to protest the poor treatment of Muslims at the hands of Sikhs in northern India, the regional court in Essen said on Friday.
The boys, aged 16-17, face charges of attempted murder and two counts of detonating explosives.
They are thought to have used a fire extinguisher to create the bomb.
Their trial is to begin pending approval from a juvenile court and will be conducted behind closed doors on account of the defendants' age.
The blast on April 16 injured three people, one of them seriously. They were among 200 guests who had been at the temple for a wedding service.
