Germany Won't Prosecute Rumsfeld but Annan Wins Medal

It looks like Donald Rumsfeld can enter Germany without running the risk of being arrested as a suspected war criminal, says Germany´s Federal Prosecutor Kay Nehm.

Rumsfeld was in Nice earlier this week before making his surprise visit to Iraq. He´s been weighing up whether to attend the Conference on Security Policy in Munich, which starts later, but fears of being arrested means he´ll be represented there today by Paul Wolfowitz.

Kofi Annan of the UN (who is not under threat of arrest in Germany either) will be presented with the Conference´s Peace Plaque, for the conference´s theme is "Peace through Dialogue" - an approach which is famously more Annan´s cup of tea than Rumsfeld´s!
