A German woman accused of being part of neo-Nazi cell that murdered 10 people has denied involvement in the killings.

Breaking her silence for the first time in two-and-a-half-years, Beate Zschaepe said she was not a member of the National Socialist Underground (NSU).

The group carried out series of racially motivated murders, bomb attacks and robberies over a decade.

In her statement, Ms Zschaepe apologised to the victims’ families for failing to stop what had happened.

“I feel morally guilty that I could not prevent 10 murders and two bomb attacks… carried out by Uwe Mundlos und Uwe Boehnhardt,” she said.

The two men apparently killed each other in a suicide pact in 2011 shortly before Ms Zschaepe handed herself in.

The 40-year-old said she first fell in love with Mundlos but met Uwe Boehnhardt on her 19th birthday and came into contact with his more nationalist friends.
