More than 100 East German police officers sealed off the U.S. Embassy here Wednesday to prevent a crowd of East Germans from pushing their way in after learning that 18 others were seeking refuge there. The 18 had slipped into the embassy Tuesday through a side door and insisted on being helped to flee the country. But by nightfall they had been persuaded to leave, on the assurance that the East German government would "view favorably" their applications for emigrant visas.
