A military tribunal on Saturday convicted 10 former members of the Nazi SS and acquitted seven others for the 1944 slaughter of more than 700 people near Bologna - the worst World War II-era civilian massacre in Italy, a news report said. The 10 received life sentences, said the Italian news agency ANSA. The defendants, all tried in absentia, are believed to live in Germany. They are one former officer and 16 enlisted personnel of the 16th SS Division. The murder trial was held in a military court in the northern port town of La Spezia. Court officials in La Spezia could not immediately be reached Saturday afternoon.
