In his first statement to the Frankfurt court, Hamadi also accused German investigators of psychological torture.

East German leaders have assured the West German government that free elections will be held within two years, a senior emissary from Bonn reported Tuesday. West German official Rudolf Seiters, after holding talks with East German leader Egon Krenz and Prime Minister Hans Modrow, said he was told that the elections could be held by the spring of 1991. Until a few weeks ago, such free elections would have been considered inconceivable in the former hard-line Communist state.

Authorities foiled a plan Saturday to smuggle 264 Asians, mostly members of the Tamil minority in Sri Lanka, to Canada aboard a ship, a police spokesman said. Police were looking for a 38-year-old Tamil suspected of organizing the trip, according to spokesman Bernd Metterhausen. The suspect, who was not identified, fled on foot as police closed in on his rented car. He is believed to have arranged a similar passage of Tamils to Canada nearly two years ago, Metterhausen told reporters.
