The World

March 10, 1985

A British air force commander who is one NATO's top officers escaped unhurt when gunmen ambushed his car in Moers, West Germany. A British army spokesman said two gunmen fired three shots at the chauffer-driven car of Air Marshal Patrick Hine, who commands the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's 2nd Allied Air Force as well as British air units in West Germany. It was the latest in a series of urban guerrilla bombings and shooting attacks on NATO personnel and installations in Europe.
