Local Editor

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was re-elected for a fourth term while nationalists made a historic surge in federal elections.

Meanwhile, Merkel's conservative CDU/CSU bloc has seen its worst result in almost 70 years but will remain the largest in parliament.

For its part, its current coalition partner, the social democratic SPD, said it will go into opposition after historic losses.

In parallel, the nationalist AfD won its first seats and is set to be the third party, a result that sparked some protests.

Dozens of demonstrators gathered outside the right-wing party's headquarters in Berlin, some with placards saying "Refugees are welcome".

Protests were also held in Frankfurt and Cologne.
