The Bonn government has secured evidence that West German firms helped Libya build an alleged chemical weapons plant, government sources said Wednesday. "As of yesterday, we are in possession of evidence which shows that the American allegations are not groundless," one source told Reuters news agency. Secretary of State George P. Shultz gave Chancellor Helmut Kohl a list in November of West German firms that Washington says helped Libya build the plant at Rabta, near Tripoli.

West German Finance Minister Gerhard Stoltenberg said Monday that his government has decided that a controversial chemical plant in Libya was built with West German help and was designed to make poison gas. Stoltenberg's comment was the first indication that a senior member of the West German government has come to accept that the plant was designed to produce chemical weapons, as the United States has charged.

A West German firm is helping Libya to develop the technique for air-to-air refueling of its jet fighter-bombers to give them enough range to reach Israel, a national newsmagazine reported Sunday. An official of the firm denied the report. Der Spiegel, edited in Hamburg, identified the West German company as a Bavarian firm called Intec, operating under the cover of a sister-firm in Liechtenstein, CTTL.

The government denied Saturday that Chancellor Helmut Kohl had been involved in a political cover-up by trying to exonerate West German firms from complicity in building a chemical complex in Libya. The denial was prompted by the charges of opposition politicians that Kohl had engaged in evasive statements and "cover-up attempts" in asserting the week before last that there was not enough evidence to indicate that West German companies helped in the plant's construction.

The West German government sharply reversed itself Friday as officials announced that legal proceedings will be undertaken against a West German firm that the United States has accused of supplying critical help to a Libyan plant it contends was built to make chemical weapons. The about-face is causing considerable embarrassment in government circles. Only last week the Finance Ministry had cleared the firm, Imhausen-Chemie, in southwestern Germany, of involvement.

U.S. intelligence agencies got hard evidence that Libya has a poison gas plant by eavesdropping on frantic Libyan telephone calls for help to West German companies after a spill during a poison gas production test last August, NBC News reported Thursday. It said summaries of the intercepted conversations were recently turned over to West German officials to quash their government's denials that West German firms had helped build what the United States says is a Libyan chemical weapons plant.

The Pentagon is locating and bombing military airfields and hardened bunkers in Iraq with the help of a document obtained from the office of a mysterious, now-deceased Iraqi expatriate and alleged arms broker, an attorney who helped acquire the information said Friday. The document--part of a 1981 contract to build 16 military sites in Iraq for $552 million--was sold to the U.S. Customs Service by an employee of London-based IBI Engineering shortly after Iraq invaded Kuwait last August.

Chancellor Helmut Kohl's policies in the matter of the Libyan chemical plant have deceived the West German public and severely damaged relations between West Germany and the United States, an opposition political leader charged Wednesday. Norbert Gansel, an armaments expert of the Social Democratic Party, said during a two-hour debate in the Bundestag, the lower house of Parliament, that Kohl had encouraged "the business of death."
