    Background: East German police today again halted traffic on the access road to West Germany in apparent protest over a three day meeting of Christian Democrat Deputies being held in West Berlin. Traffic lights at the Staaken checkpoint were turned red early this morning and weren't changed for nearly three hours. In that time a long line of trucks and cars built up, but now used to such a closure many people simply left their cars and walked, or waited silently.
