German terrorists target U.S., NA TO military bases

KARLSRUHE, West Germany (UPI) - U.S.
and NATO military bases and soldiers top the
hit list of West Germany's most wanted
terrorists in the revolutionary Red Army Fac-
tion, the nation's top prosecutor said yester-
day.
"The security situation regarding the Red
Army Faction is as ever tense. It is important
that the security arrangements for target
figures and target objects should be kept as
comprehensive as it is now," said Kurt Reb-
mann, West Germany's chief terrorist hunter
and federal prosecutor.
REBMANN, whose intensive search for
members of the terrorist group has been step-
ped up on orders of Interior Minister Friedrich
Zimmermann, said U.S. and NATO military
targets and "the military machine" in general
remain most at risk of attack by the

revolutionary war." fourth section consists of fugitives who are

charged with political agitation and the welfare
of those in prison.
"Logistically and personnelwise, the RAF is
still in a position to mount terrorist attacks
against specific targets in line with its concepts
and plans," Rebmann said.
ZIMMERMANN released figures last week
saying security officials credited the group
with 21 bombing attacks, including several on
NATO oil pipeline targets, in the first six mon-
ths of 1985.
The RAF's last major attack on a U.S. target
was an attempt in December to blow up an
American-run NATO army officer school in
Oberammergau, Bavaria. It was foiled by a
guard who spotted the bomb in aparked car.
The authorities thought they had broken the
back of the RAF with a wave of arrests in 1983.
But late last year, it became clear the group
had reorganized and was again a force.
