Kohl to Manchester

MACCLESFIELD, England () -- German chancellor Helmut Kohl still plans to travel to Manchester to watch Germany's Euro 96 game against Italy on Wednesday despite Saturday's bomb blast in the city.


Kohl, a personal friend of team coach Berti Vogts, would fly in to attend the Group C game at Old Trafford, German soccer federation spokesman Wolfgang Niersbach said Tuesday. Security was stepped up for Sunday's match at the ground, a day after an explosion rocked the city center.
