FRANKFURT -- Germany's two major political parties sealed an agreement yesterday to govern the country together under Angela Merkel, who would become the country's first female chancellor. But after six weeks of grueling negotiations, which exposed fissures on both sides and necessitated deep compromises, the new government faced a murky future, shorn of the reformist zeal that many here believed is necessary to fix Germany's stagnant economy and stem its soaring unemployment. "This can become a coalition of new possibilities," Merkel said after the conclusion of talks between her Christian Democratic Union and the Social Democratic Party of the departing chancellor, Gerhard Schroeder.

These days it's cause to celebrate when a restaurant more ambitious than a pub or pizza place opens in Baltimore. Scary times usually produce eateries that offer sure bets in the way of food - sure bets that don't cost much. When I first heard about the Reserve (1542 Light St., TheReserveBaltimore.com), a new Federal Hill bar, I figured when it got around to serving food, the kitchen would produce the usual nachos, wings and burgers. Instead, the offerings include tuna tataki, shrimp and tropical fruit ceviche, cornmeal-crusted red grouper in a smoked salmon caper beurre blanc, Buffalo strip steak with parsnip puree and pan-roasted boneless quail.

Security Council, as Iran threatened to cut off nuclear inspections if such action were taken. Bush and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, at the White House for her first visit since winning the post in October, presented a united front on Iran, telling reporters that Iran's behavior was unacceptable and that they would work together to resolve the crisis through diplomatic means.

LONDON -- Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice admitted that the United States had mistakenly abducted a German citizen as a terror suspect, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said yesterday. But Rice, in visits yesterday to Berlin and Bucharest, Romania, avoided public apologies or explanations for security policies increasingly coming under criticism in Europe. After meeting with Rice in Berlin, Merkel said the secretary of state acknowledged that the United States had made a mistake in detaining for months a German citizen named Khaled al-Masri.

LONDON -- Germany's voters left their country in suspense last night, as both Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder and his conservative opponent claimed victory in parliamentary elections too close to call, leaving hopes for clear policies to fix Europe's largest economy at least temporarily on hold. The only result from the elections that seemed clear last night was that Schroeder's existing coalition would no longer remain in power, though he could conceivably remain chancellor. Official results showed conservative challenger Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats getting slightly more votes than Schroeder's Social Democrats but failing to win the majority needed to govern, even when combined with her preferred coalition partner, the pro-business Free Democrats.

Most Americans, if they think about Germany at all this time of year, focus on Munich's Oktoberfest, with its oompah bands, barmaids toting hefty beer mugs, and traditional costumes. But these caricatures ignore important changes resulting from Sunday's national elections, which ended the so-called Grand Coalition between Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats, a large party on the right, and the Social Democrats, a large party on the left. In a year when capitalists and bankers are widely reviled, German voters did something strange; they dumped the pro-worker, pro-low-unemployment Social Democrats and chose the centrist, pro-business Free Democrats as Ms. Merkel's coalition partner.

Participants in the Group of Eight summit, led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, yielded to Bush's insistence that while new talks were necessary to deal with climate change, the summit must not order specific steps and targets to reduce the greenhouse gases widely blamed for rising temperatures.

Rostock, Germany -- President Bush presented himself yesterday as caught in the middle of the international climate debate, fending off allies' calls for specific steps to reverse global warming while encouraging major developing nations to join eventual climate negotiations. The dispute over how to wrestle with the changing climate is emerging as a focal point of the annual Group of Eight summit that began last night in Heiligendamm, a seaside resort village 14 miles northwest of here on the Baltic Sea. The gathering has drawn tens of thousands of protesters to this northeastern corner of Germany.

BERLIN -- The ultramodern Dresdner Bank building rises from land that used to be part of communist East Berlin, but this winter evening, Americans and Germans are busy putting that and other unpleasant elements of the past behind them. At a crowded reception sponsored by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Germany, capitalists are eating, drinking and discussing ways to do something frowned on under the previous regime - make profits. There is plenty to talk about, since Germany is the world's biggest exporting nation and America the biggest importer.

George Merkel tried to save someone's life. But someone ended up saving his. And now he and his rescuers have been recognized by the Anne Arundel County Fire Department for their bravery. Merkel was on his way to help paint a friend's house last month when a pickup truck crossed a double line in Lothian and forced him to swerve out of the way. The truck flipped over into an embankment and caught fire. Merkel rushed to help the driver - and collapsed, the victim of a heart attack. Four people stopped to help Merkel and the truck driver.

WASHINGTON -- On April 7, 2003, with the battle for Baghdad raging, an intelligence tip was rushed to a Pentagon targeting team: Saddam Hussein had been spotted near a chicken restaurant in the city's wealthy al Mansour district. Less than 45 minutes later, a B-1 bomber obliterated the site with four satellite-guided bombs, leaving a deep crater and at least a dozen dead. The Iraqi ruler, it soon became clear, was not among them. An Iraqi informant provided the initial tip, but U.S. officials now say that confirmation came from an unusual source, two German military intelligence operatives who stayed in a Baghdad safe house after the German government closed its embassy.
