Amish held over community attacks

Members of an Amish splinter group in Ohio have been charged with hate crimes after several attacks on people in their community.

Victims had their beards and hair cut in a spate of assaults on a community where women do not cut their hair and men grow beards once they marry.

The seven men include group leader Samuel Mullet, 66, and three of his sons.

Daniel Griffiths reports.
