    Background: Five anarchists serving prison sentences in West Germany Were allowed to fly out of the country on Monday (3 march) as part of the conditions set for the release of the kidnapped leader of the Christian Democrat in West Berlin, Herr Peter Lorenz.

    Herr Lorenz was kidnapped by left wing anarchists last Thursday, three days before local Government elections in West Berlin.

    The kidnappers had promised to release him if a number of demand, including the release of their friends, were met by the West German Government.

    The Born Government met all the demands but has still received no word on the whereabouts of the 52 year old Herr Lorenz.

    There ware fears that he might no be released until the anarchists were allowed to land and were given asylum abroad .

    The Christian Democrat made big gains in the West Berlin election despite the absence of their leader. They gained forty-three-point-nine per cent of the vote, and forced the ruling Social Democrat to seek coalition with the Free Democrats to stay in power.
