A German court yesterday sentenced two young thugs to 15 and eight- year jail terms for a racist attack on Italian building workers which left one of the victims paralysed and barely able to speak. The court in Potsdam near Berlin found both men guilty of attempted murder for attacking the Italians with a baseball bat in the town of Trebbin last September after setting out on what the presiding judge called a "real manhunt."
