An alleged neo-Nazi was acquitted by a German court today for a bombing 18 years ago targeting Jewish immigrants at a commuter rail station.

Ralf Spies was cleared of 12 counts of attempted murder and a charge of causing an explosion in the attack in the western city of Duesseldorf on the afternoon of July 27, 2000. One woman lost her unborn baby in the blast.

Spies was known to police as a right-wing extremist at the time and ran a military surplus store near the scene of the crime, which shocked Germany and drew international condemnation.
