Angela Merkel: 'Eurozone youth must move for work'

The eurozone's 3.6m or so young unemployed people should be ready to move for work, the German chancellor has said.

Angela Merkel has long been criticised in countries like Spain and Greece where unemployment is rising to previously unknown levels.

She told the BBC's Stephen Evans that it was unfair that young people were paying the price for "something they were not guilty of" but that she had seen the benefits of reunification and greater mobility in the workforce in her own constituency.
