    Background: Police and security officials were on full alert at West German airports today (Sunday, December 30th) following a report that an Arab guerrilla group armed with ground-to-air rockets had entered the country from Belgium.

    Troops with automatic weapons and armoured care reinforced the airport guard. Police at Cologne Airport received the original warning that guerrillas were planning a rocket attack on an airliner. They were given the tip-off in an anonymous telephone call on Friday (December 28).

    The caller, who spoke broken German, said the guerrillas were armed with Soviet-made SAM-7 ground-to-air missiles, which they were planning to fire at a Untied States, Italian or Israeli airliner.
