    Another four-year term would bring Merkel level with the postwar record set by Helmut KohlAngela Merkel, who has steered Germany through several global crises as its first woman leader, says she will seek a fourth term as chancellor in general elections next year.

    Speaking after a meeting with high-ranking members of her centre-right party, Merkel told reporters on Sunday that “I literally thought about this decision endlessly ... but I am ready to run for office again”.

    If the 62-year-old wins next year and serves the entire four-year term, she would match her one-time mentor Helmut Kohl’s post-war record of 16 years in office.

    Murder fugitive detained in Spain

    MADRID – Spanish police have arrested a German fugitive suspected of slitting his girlfriend’s throat, and have safely recovered the couple’s 18-month-old toddler.

    Officers arrested the man at a block of flats in Lloret de Mar where he was hiding with the baby boy, police said in a statement. He had been on the run since German police found the body of his 20-year-old girlfriend inside plastic rubbish bags at the couple’s flat in Freyung, Bavaria, at the end of October.

    Police said the man recently got a tattoo on his upper arm with the name of his deceased girlfriend, her birthday as well the suspected date of her murder – 27/10/2016 – beside a cross and the words “Thank you for everything” in Spanish.

    Spanish police said they began looking for the man after they were alerted by their German counterparts that he may have fled to Spain as he made his way to North Africa.

    The man is suspected of having used his girlfriend’s mobile phone after he killed her to update her Facebook and other social media profiles to try to throw off investigators.

    Police took the toddler to a juvenile welfare home where he will be looked after until German social services staff arrive in Spain to pick him up.
