BONN, GERMANY BONN, Germany (AP) _ Germany created a government office Wednesday to coordinate its fight against the Church of Scientology and to keep people who are affiliated with the group out of key public jobs.

Chancellor Helmut Kohl announced the move after meeting with governors of Germany's 16 states, some of whom have been pressing for tougher measures against the U.S.-based group.

Federal and state governments will work together to try to keep companies and people with links to Scientology away from jobs involving teaching and counseling, Kohl said in a statement.
