    Background: MANY HUNDREDS OF TAXI-DRIVERS ATTENDED THE FUNERAL IN FRANKFURT OCTOBER 24 OF FRANZ LIEB - REPORTED TO BE THE 152ND TAXI-DRIVER TO BE ROBBED AND MURDERED IN WEST GERMANY SINCE 1945.

    OVER 800 TAXIS, BEARING WREATHS AND MOURNING EMBLEMS, DROVE SLOWLY THROUGH THE CITY TO THE CEMETERY TO UNDERLINE THEIR DEMAND FOR THE REINTRODUCTION OF THE DEATH PENALTY TO DEAL WITH THE CONTINUING RISE IN TAXI-DRIVER MURDERS.

    IN A RECENT PUBLIC OPINION POLL THROUGHOUT WEST GERMANY, 63-PER-CENT OF THE PEOPLE QUESTIONED FAVOURED THE RETURN OF THE DEATH PENALTY.
