ON the evening of September 29, a car being driven by a Polish male carrying three African passengers, one from Guinea and two from the Ivory Coast was stopped at a border crossing between Germany and Austria at Kiefersfelden according to the German Press Agency.

When the car was routinely searched, German border guards discovered three metal pipes, explosive materials and ignition devices as well as knives and drugs, so all four were arrested and the area was isolated so that explosives experts could examine the car fully.

In theory, Germany operates an open border policy but with the problems of terrorist incursions and a change in public opinion concerning the free entry of foreign nationals, border authorities are becoming more rigorous in making spot checks especially of cars carrying obviously alien passengers.
