Germany holding up arms shipment

Thursday, April 11, 2002

BERLIN -- Germany is holding up arms deliveries to Israel, an official said Wednesday, but the government would not say whether it has imposed a de facto embargo on weapons sales to Israel because of the spiraling violence in the Middle East. An application for the sale of tank parts has reached the government's Security Council, which has the final word on weapons exports, but there was no date set for taking a decision on it.
