A German court has convicted a 32- year-old Iraqi man of raping two Chinese college students in the western city of Bochum.
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.
The high-profile case was one of several that fanned a national debate in Germany about how to respond to a rise in violent crimes committed by migrants.
