Checkpoint Charlie is no more. The famous crossing-point at the Berlin Wall, a symbol of nearly 30 years of the Cold War, was dismantled at a history making ceremony in Berlin. The event was attended by then Secretary of State James Baker, and the foreign ministers of Great Britain, France, the Soviet Union and both Germanys.
