Belgium is considering pulling several hundred soldiers out of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's front-line forces in West Germany as an economy measure, defense sources said in Brussels. They confirmed a Belgian press report that the Belgian army chief of staff, Gen. Josef Segers, has proposed scrapping four anti-tank battalions, including two based in West Germany, and moving three other battalions back to Belgium. Belgium has about 25,000 troops in West Germany.
