China demand sees June rise in German exports

Germany's exports rose faster than expected in June, a further sign of recovery in Europe's biggest economy.

Exports were up 3.8% compared with a month earlier, and up 29% on the year, according to Germany's federal statistics office.

Investors hope the strong figures mean Germany's economy grew faster in the second quarter of the year.
