West German Trade Union Urges Thant Influence to Block Atrocities

The six million member West German Trade Union Association sent a strongly worded letter today to United Nations Secretary General U Thant urging that the UN use its influence to make sure that atrocities like the public hangings in Iraq are not repeated. So far, no official German spokesman has reacted to the hangings although West Germany was one of the first nations to condemn Israel’s Dec. 28 reprisal raid on Beirut Airport.
