  • Description

    EAST GERMANY HAS BEEN STRENGTHENING THE BARRIERS ON ITS BORDER WITH WEST GERMANY. BORDER GUARDS WERE FILMED TODAY (WEDNESDAY) ERECTING A CONCRETE WALL IN THE SMALL BAVARIAN VILLAGE OF MOEDLAREUTH.

    THIS 8-FOOT HIGH WALL REPLACES THE BARBED WIRE BARRICADE THAT HAS DIVIDED THE VILLAGE BETWEEN EAST AND WEST FOR THE LAST NINETEEN YEARS.

    LOCAL WEST GERMAN OFFICIALS SAID THEY HAD NO IDEA WHY THE WALL WAS BEING ERECTED. NO REFUGEES HAD CROSSED TO THE WEST FROM THE MOEDLAREUTH AREA FOR YEARS.

    (TEN EAST GERMANS CROSSED TO WEST GERMANY NEAR HANOVER LAST WEEKEND -- THREE OF THEM BY SWIMMING ACROSS THE RIVER ELBE ON THE BORDER).
