Bonn turns silent on E. German asylum seekers

The West German government, embarrassed that relatives of East German Prime Minister Willy Stoph are sheltering in its Prague embassy, said today it would not disclose any information about East Bloc asylum seekers.

A press release said Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher has ordered that no information should be given ''about humanitarian cases connected with Bonn's foreign missions.''

It followed West German newspaper reports that Stoph's niece, Ingrid Berg, her husband, two children, and mother-in-law entered the Prague embassy Friday, demanding that they be allowed to go to West Germany.
