HAGEN - Three men went on trial on Tuesday in a German court in what would normally be a routine bank robbery case except for one thing - their ages.

The three accused are 64, 73, and 74 years old, each man with a lengthy criminal record and time spent in jail.

In the trial in the northern German town of Hagen, they face charges for 14 bank heists in which they used a machine gun and an axe to threaten bank employees and get away with more than EUR 1 million.
