Helmut Kohl dies at 87
The ex-Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany from 1982 to 1998, the Father of Reunification, has died aged 87.
Leading the Christian Democrats, Helmut Kohl was the longest-serving Chancellor of Germany in the twentieth century. He was the protegé of Chancellor Angela Merkel, who turned against him in a financial scandal at the end of the 1990s. In 2011 he criticized Merkel's policies of austerity.
He died at home in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate. He fell in 2008 and since then had been in a wheelchair.
