    Background: WEST BERLIN POLICE ERECTED BARBED-WIRE BARRICADES AT THE FREIDRICHSTRASSE CHECKPOINT IN WEST BERLIN YESTERDAY AFTER ANGRY WEST BERLINERS HAD AGAIN STONED A RUSSIAN BUS TAKING RELIEF GUARDS TO THE SOVIET WAR MEMORIAL IN THE BRITAIN SECTOR.

    FILM SHOWS RUSSIAN GUARDS BOARDING THE BUS AT THE CHECKPOINT AND LATER ARRIVING AT THE SOVIET MEMORIAL WHILE NEARBY STREETS WERE BEING CORDONED OFF TO KEEP AWAY DEMONSTRATORS.

    EARLIER YESTERDAY BERLIN HAD ITS MOST VIOLENT OUTBREAK OF RAGE BY WEST BERLINERS AGAINST THE WALL DIVIDING THE CITY. THE SOVIET BUS WAS HEAVILY STONED ON ITS WAY TO THE WAR MEMORIAL, AND AT CHECKPOINT CHARLIE SEVERAL THOUSAND WEST BERLINERS CLASHED WITH POLICE BEFORE BEING DISPERSED BY WATER CANNON.

    (THE OUTBURSTS HAVE BEEN CHIEFLY IN PROTECT AGAINST THE SHOOTING LAST WEEK BY EAST GERMAN POLICE OF A GERMAN YOUTH TRYING TO ESCAPE OVER THE WALL TO WEST BERLIN.)
