Germany's respected news weekly Der Spiegel has mistakenly published an obituary for former US president George HW Bush.

The unfinished obituary appeared on Der Spiegel's website for only a few minutes Sunday before it was spotted by Internet users. In it, the correspondent describes Bush as "a colorless politician" whose image only improved when it was compared to the later presidency of his son, George W. Bush.
