March 18, 1986|From Reuters

WEST BERLIN — Electronic "bugs" have been found in two public telephone booths in West Berlin near crossing points in the Berlin Wall, the city's counterintelligence chief said Monday.

Manfred Ganschow said it is not clear who installed the listening devices but the fact that they had a short range and the booths were in sight of East German watchtowers "allows certain suspicions."
