Resumes and work histories of the staff at the Berliner Zeitung, formerly a leading East Berlin newspaper, will be scrutinized following revelations that at least two leading journalists there were informants for the Stasi, the East German secret police. One of the journalists has been identified as Thomas Leinkauf; the other's name has not yet been released. The paper's management indicated that it thought it had rid itself of Stasi informants some time ago. Here's more from the BBC and Deutsche Welle.
