Chancellor Helmut Kohl's governing Christian Democratic Union party expelled three members today because they belong to the Church of Scientology.

The German government claims Scientology is largely a money-making organization with some traits of organized crime. The U.S.-based church, which claims 30,000 members in Germany, accused German officials of persecution.
