It's never too late for justice

Italy convicts former SS officers

Italy has sentenced 10 German former Nazi officers to life imprisonment for their role in a World War II massacre of 560 civilians in an Italian village.
The defendants, all in their 80s, were tried in absentia in a military tribunal in the port town of La Spezia.

The court heard that the killings in the Tuscan village of Sant'Anna di Stazzema had been premeditated.

The jury took seven hours to reach a verdict on the August 1944 massacre, one of Italy's worst war crimes.

If the 560 victims of Sant'Anna di Stazzema can have justice, more than sixty years on, why has Burundi's August 2004 Gatumba massacre already been forgotten?
