Ten Czechoslovaks on a Danube River cruise to West Germany have failed to return to their ship after a visit to Munich, police said Monday.

Three of the group have applied for political asylum in West Germany but the rest are unaccounted for, a West German border police spokesman said.

The 10 were among 185 tourists who sailed up the Danube on the Soviet cruise ship Dnieper last Thursday from Czechoslovakia to Passau in Bavaria.
