A German court has convicted a 32-year-old Iraqi man of raping two Chinese college students in the western city of Bochum.

The DPA news agency reported Tuesday that the court sentenced the man to 11 years in prison.


The defendant came to Germany as an asylum-seeker more than a year ago with his wife and children.

The victims, who were 21 and 27 years old at the time, had been studying at Bochum university.
