Germany launched a mass trial Thursday of 30 defendants accused of brutally abusing asylum seekers in a refugee home in scenes that drew comparisons to the U.S. prison camp in Guantanamo Bay.The mammoth trial is being held in a congress center in Siegen, North Rhine-Westphalia state, near the refugee center in the town of Burbach that was rocked by the abuse scandal four years ago.Staff allegedly beat, tormented and humiliated asylum seekers or locked them up for days at a time in the facility that housed some 700 people seeking safe haven in Germany.
