German chancellor wins hair-dye case
Breaking News
Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has won a court case against a news agency which reported allegations that his dark hair is dyed.

A court in Hamburg upheld an injunction taken out by Mr Schroeder to prevent the DDP agency repeating the allegations, originally made by an image consultant.

DDP appealed against the injunction, saying it had serious implications for all journalists, who cannot always get their information from first-hand sources.

The news agency says it intends to appeal again against Friday's ruling.
