Christian Klar, a former member of the Red Army Faction, is to be released on parole.

Klar has spent the last 26 years in jail after being convicted of involvement in 20 murders and attempted murders, including the killings of senior German industry figures and public officials.

The 56-year old will be released in January after serving the minimum term for a life sentence.

The Red Army Faction, also known as the “Baader-Meinhof Gang”, was a left-wing group that grew out of the student protests and anti-Vietnam war movements in West Germany in the late 1060’s.
