Despite strict security measures, early on Monday, seven people managed to cut through a perimeter at the US air base in Buechel in the German state of Rhineland-Pfalz to protest against nuclear weapons, which the activists claim are deployed at the military site, Bundeswehr, the German military, said.
The activists were stopped by servicemen patrolling the base after entering the security zone and then handed over to the police.
Prior to that, the anti-nuclear activists had held a spontaneous protest in front of the base's main gate, which was dispersed by police.
The German military, which has been harshly criticized for being unable to prevent intrusions into the air base, has already pledged to enhance security measures, including the installation of a video surveillance system to detect suspicious activity near the fence.
Peace activists have been protesting against the US nuclear weapons allegedly stored at the Buechel Air Base in Germany. Media reports claim that there are about 20 US nuclear bombs, which can be installed on German Tornado jets, at the base.
