BERLIN (AP) — Markus Wolf, the ”man without a face” who outwitted the West as communist East Germany’s long-serving spymaster, died Thursday [Nov. 9, 2006]. He was 83.

Wolf died in his apartment in Berlin, his stepdaughter Claudia Wall said in a statement. The cause of his death, on the 17th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, was not released.
