  • Description

    THE WEST GERMAN CABINET MET IN BONN TODAY (WEDNESDAY) TO CONSIDER HOW TO HANDLE THE WAVE OF VIOLENCE WHICH HAS SWEPT THE COUNTRY SINCE THE ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION OF STUDENT LEADER RUDI DUTSCHKE. LATER, THE CABINET VOICED ITS RESOLVE TO QUELL POLITICAL VIOLENCE BY ALL LEGAL MEANS.

    THE CABINET PLACED THE BLAME FOR THE ORGANISED VIOLENCE WITH THE RADICAL SOCIALIST GERMAN STUDENTS LEAGUE (SDS). LATER THE CHAIRMAN OF THE SDS, KARL-DIETRICH WOLFF, ANNOUNCED THAT THERE WOULD BE NO LET-UP, AND SAID THAT THE UNREST WOULD CONTINUE UNTIL THE POLITICAL CONSEQUENCES HAD BEEN DRAWN FROM THE STUDENTS' DEMANDS.

    THE DISTURBANCES, WHICH HIT MOST OF WEST GERMANY'S MAJOR CITIES, CLAIMED THEIR FIRST FATALITY TODAY WHEN AN ASSOCIATED PRESS PHOTOGRAPHER IN MUNICH, KLAUS FRINGS, AGED 33, DIED FROM HEAD INJURIES AFTER BEING HIT BY A STONE.
