The World

Two Americans who were ordered expelled from Spain last week were caught photographing communications antennae near the office of Prime Minister Felipe Gonzalez, the Madrid newspaper El Pais reported. The paper said the two men were seized by security police on Jan. 28. Gonzalez announced the ouster of Dennis E. McMahan, second secretary of the U.S. Embassy's political section, and Johnny F. Massey, a civilian attached to the embassy, for what he called "activities that did not correspond to their diplomatic status." U.S. Embassy and palace officials would not comment on the El Pais report.
