The newsmagazine Stern published five photographs Thursday of Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer assaulting a police officer during his days as a militant in the 1970s in Frankfurt.

The photos emerged just before Mr. Fischer, 52, was scheduled to provide testimony at the trial of an old comrade from his stone-throwing days who is charged with kidnapping and involvement in the murder of three people when the international terrorist Carlos the Jackal took 70 people hostage at a meeting of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries in Vienna in 1975.

On Thursday in Berlin, Mr. Fischer, in an apology, said that using violence had been a "big mistake."
