Israel, West German Talks
Key to Terrorists' Release

early release of two Ger-
mans convicted of terrorist
activities, repatriated last
week before completing
even half of their nominal
10-year sentences, was ar-
ranged during conversa-
tions between Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir
and West German officials

Europe, Foreign Ministry
circles said.

Brigitte Schultz, both 30,

members of a German ter-

secret in Israel, until details
were published abroad.

abroad, they were impli-

Jerusalem. According to the
semi-official daily, he was
responding to a question on
the Vatican's view of Is-
rael's law declaring undi-
vided Jerusalem its capital.
The pontiff was quoted as
saying further that "the
Vatican categorically re-
jects the view that it is
enough to protect the right
to visit the holy places while
leaving Jerusalem a united
Jewish city under Jewish
He reportedly urged Is-
rael not to obstruct at-
tempts to bring peace to the
Middle East. He said Mos-
lems and Christians had a
duty to work together "to
achieve freedom for
Jerusalem and restore the
holy city to all religious

the status of Jerusalem and
the problem of the Pales-
