The charges against two Dutch nationals who brutally attacked a waiter in Prague in April of this year have been upgraded to attempted murder, the daily Pravo reported on Tuesday.
The two men were originally charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm, but medical experts assessing the case said the prolonged brutality of the assault had been life-threatening.
If convicted the men could face up to 18 years in jail. They remain in custody.
