West Germany will try to stop the shipment from India to Iran of 257 tons of a chemical used to make deadly mustard gas, a deal arranged by a West German firm, a government spokesman said. Bonn began investigating the firm, Rheineisen Chemical Products of Duesseldorf, after Washington alleged that it coordinated the sale to Iran of the Indian-made chemical, thionyl chloride. Government spokesman Herbert Schmuelling said the chemical cargo is still stored in India but scheduled to be shipped to Iran next month.

West German police raided the offices of a Duesseldorf company suspected of planning to help deliver to Iran chemicals for making poison gas, and officials said they have evidence that the firm had illegally failed to seek an export permit required for the deal. A week after Secretary of State James A. Baker III told West German officials of U.S. suspicions about the firm, West German prosecutors said they have launched an investigation of the company, Rheineisen Chemical Products. The company denied any wrongdoing but acknowledged that it helped arrange a shipment planned for next month from India via Dubai to Iran of 257 tons of thionyl chloride, used in making mustard gas. Lawyers for Rheineisen said the firm has canceled the deal.
