East Germany's defense minister said Thursday that tension is rising between impoverished Soviet troops based in the country and increasingly resentful local people.

Dealing a potentially serious blow to confidence in U.S.-Soviet arms pacts, East Germany acknowledged Wednesday that it has 24 previously undeclared Soviet-made missiles that were banned by the 1987 medium-range missile treaty. The East German government said that it will destroy the SS-23 missiles, which are capable of carrying nuclear warheads but apparently were equipped with conventional explosives or other non-nuclear devices. It said two launch platforms were destroyed last month.
