When 120 Swiss soldiers accidentally invaded Liechtenstein this week, the two countries laughed it off and said they doubted there would be any serious repercussions. They were wrong.
When French radio and television reported the invasion, without specifying whose borders had been crossed, thousands of panicked French men and women jammed the telephone lines. Especially hard hit were the lines to the Swiss Embassy and consulates from people asking where to surrender or volunteering to collaborate.
