    MORE TROUBLE ON THE BERLIN AUTOBAHN.A BRITISH MILITARY CONVOU LEAVING THE CITY WAS DELAYED FOR NINE HOURS TODAY (WEDNESDAY) AT THE SOVIET CHECKPOINT AT BADELSBERG, THE START OF THE ROUTE 10 HELMSTEDT, IN WEST GERMANY.

    LIKE THE AMERICAN CONVOY LAST WEEK, THE RUSSIANS WANTED THE 28 BRITISH TROOPS TO GET OUT OF THEIR VEHICLES TO BE COUNTED.BUT THEY REFUSED.FOOD AND OTHER SUPPLIES WERE SENT TO THEM FROM BERLIN, AND ANOTHER BRITISH CONVOY, FILMED HERE, WAITED IN SUPPORT AT THE ALLIED CHECKPOINT BRAVO, A MILE AWAY.

    THEN, AS OFFICIAL PROTESTS WERE MADE TO SOVIET HEADQUARTERS IN EAST GERMANY, THE CONVOY WAS ALLOWED TO MOVE ON.IT LATER PASSED THROUGH INTO WEST GERMANY WITHOUT INCIDENT, THOUGH THE SECOND CONVOY STAYED IN BERLIN.
