German minister gives up doctorate after plagiarism row

Germany's defence minister has given up his doctoral title for good, after allegations that he had plagiarised sections of his thesis.
Last week Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg said he would temporarily give up the title while his university investigated the charges.
The University of Bayreuth says he has now asked them to retract his doctorate in law, according to German TV.
Mr Guttenberg admitted that he had made "serious mistakes".>>>
