Angela Merkel, Germany’s chancellor, is facing fresh scrutiny over her political activities in the former East Germany, with a book alleging she took part in the Communist regime’s propaganda activities.

Ms Merkel is the first chancellor to come from the German Democratic Republic.

Ms Merkel, who remains by far the most popular politician in Germany, has reacted calmly to the claims.
