Suspected leftists bombed a NATO fuel pipeline in West Germany, causing loss of diesel fuel but no injuries. Officials said that the pipeline, which supplies military vehicles of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, was damaged near Weilburg, about 24 miles northwest of Frankfurt. An estimated 2,600 gallons of diesel motor fuel leaked before it was repaired. The NATO pipeline has frequently been the target of terrorist attacks, many of them blamed on the leftist Red Army Faction.
