German magazine mistakenly publishes George HW Bush obit

A respected German magazine has mistakenly published an obituary for former US president George HW Bush.



Washington: A respected German magazine has mistakenly published an obituary for former US president George HW Bush.

Der Spiegel published the obituary hours after a family spokesman said the 88-year-old was recovering from illness.

Bush was hospitalised in Houston November 23 for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough and moved to intensive care on December 23 after he developed a fever.

According to the Huff Post, the unfinished obituary appeared on Der Spiegel`s website for only a few minutes on Sunday before it was spotted by Internet users and removed.

In it, the magazine`s New York correspondent described Bush as "a colourless politician" whose image only improved when it was compared to the later presidency of his son, George W Bush, the report said.

According to the report, the magazine apologised on Twitter, calling the publication of the obituary a ‘technical mistake’.
