Germany rolls out biggest police deployment in post-war history


United Press International

HEILIGENDAMM, Germany, May 30 — Germany is not taking any security risks as it prepares to host the Group of Eight summit in Heiligendamm.

The summit venue has been closed off completely, in the latest of several security measures Berlin has introduced in the Baltic Sea resort.

On Wednesday morning, police sealed off the last gap in the nearly $20-million security fence; from now on, only Heiligendamm residents, hotel personnel and other accredited individuals can enter the area -- through one of two heavily secured checkpoints.
