  • Description

    CZECHOSLOVAKIAN SOLDIERS REMOVED THREE LINES OF BARBED WIRE OBSTACLES ON WEDNESDAY ALONG A THREE-MILE (ABOUT 5 KM) STRETCH OF THE BORDER WITH WEST GERMANY NEAR BAERNAU, IN BAVARIA. THE CZECH NEWS AGENCY, CETEKA, HAS SAID ONLY THAT FRONTIER GUARDS WERE CONTINUING TO "REPAIR" BORDER FORTIFICATIONS AT VARIOUS PARTS OF THE FRONTIER.

    ABOUT 20 CZECH SOLDIERS, HEADED BY AN OFFICER, WERE REPORTED TO BE TAKING PART IN THE REMOVAL OF THE FORTIFICATIONS, WHICH WERE HEAVILY WORN AND DAMAGED. IT'S BELIEVED THEY ARE UNNECESSARY ANYWAY, FOLLOWING THE REPORTED ERECTION OF A NEW BARBED WIRE BARRIER ABOUT ONE MILE (KILOMETRE) INSIDE CZECHOSLOVAKIAN TERRITORY.
