German Chancellor Angela Merkel (C) smiles as Polish border police and German federal police lift up the border gate on the German-Polish border checkpoint in the eastern German town of Zittau December 21, 2007. Frontiers in east Europe once guarded by machineguns and barbed wire in the Cold War fell away on Friday as nine mostly former communist states joined the EU's border-free zone amid fireworks, cheers and music. The extension of the European Union's so-called Schengen zone brought in Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Malta, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.REUTERS/Fabrizio Bensch (GERMANY)
