  • Description

    A CONVOY OF WEST GERMAN ARMY VEHICLES, LOADED WITH TROOPS AND EQUIPMENT, CROSSED INTO DENMARK YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE DENMARK WAS LIBERATED FROM HITLER'S RULE IN 1945. AS THE LORRIES AND JEEPS CAME ACROSS THE BORDER THEY WERE STOPPED BY GROUPS OF DEMONSTRATORS SITTING IN THE ROADWAY.

    THE GERMANS ARE JOINING BRITISH AND DANISH FORCES IN A NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANISATION ARMY EXERCISE. THE DEMONSTRATORS WERE PROTESTING AT THE PRESENCE OF GERMAN MILITARY UNITS ON DANISH SOIL -- AND AGAINST DENMARK'S CONTINUING MEMBERSHIP OF NATO. THE PROTESTS WERE ARRANGED BY PACIFIST AND LEFT-WING ORGANISATIONS.

    POLICE WERE ON DUTY NEAR THE BORDER WHEN THE GERMAN CONVOY ARRIVED AND QUICKLY PULLED THE DEMONSTRATORS AWAY FROM THE PATH OF THE VEHICLES. FOUR OF THE DEMONSTRATORS WERE ARRESTED.

    THE EXERCISE BEGINS TODAY -- AND INVOLVES 175 WEST GERMAN, 300 DANISH AND 30 BRITISH TROOPS.
