WASHINGTON (AP) _ The State Department in its annual worldwide survey of human rights violations, will criticize Germany for its restrictions on the Church of Scientology, the Washington Post reported Monday.

The newspaper said that the report, due out Wednesday, will chastise Germany for an administration official characterized as "a campaign of harassment and intimidation" against the controversial church.

The United States has expressed concern about Germany's policies toward the church and its members, but also has been told by the German government through diplomatic channels not to interfere.
