LONDON -- Britain's defense ministry says it is investigating allegations of sexual abuse of children at a former Royal Air Force base in Berlin.

The ministry said Friday the alleged offenses, which occurred between 1981 and 1989, involve a former RAF serviceman who was stationed in Berlin at the time and are being investigated by the RAF Police Special Investigations and Intelligence Branch.

Wing Commander Mike Dixon, who is overseeing the investigation, said in a statement that a man in his early 60s from the London area has been interviewed by RAF police.

The defense ministry urged individuals to come forward who served at, or had connections with, the ex-RAF base at Gatow during the 1980s and 1990s and might have information relating to the alleged offenses.
