      Abducted by aliens? Seek compo
      From correspondents in Berlin

      A GERMAN lawyer says he hopes to drum up more business by
      pursuing state compensation claims for people who believe they
      were abducted by aliens.

      "There's quite obviously demand for legal advice here", Jens
      Lorek said.

      "The trouble is, people are afraid of making fools of themselves
      in court."

      Mr Lorek, a lawyer based in the eastern city of Dresden who
      specialises in social and labour law, said he hoped to expand his
      client base by taking on the unusual work.

      He has yet to win any abduction claims, but says there are plenty
      of potential clients, noting that extra-terrestrial watchdogs
      report scores of alien assaults every year.

      "These people could appeal for therapies or cures," he said.

      Mr Lorek, 41, is pinning his hopes for success on a German law
      which grants kidnap victims the right to state compensation.

      Asked if he was worried he might look ridiculous by seeking
      justice for clients haunted by aliens, Mr Lorek was untroubled.

      "Nobody has laughed about it up until now," he said.
