Angela Merkel's party suffers in German state votes as she faces most serious challenge to her power
The Christian Democrats lost two out of three regional states in the elections, according to exit polls

Angela Merkel was reeling from a series of election losses on Sunday that could be the most serious challenge she has faced to her power in Germany.
The vote, on what the German press called “Super Sunday”, was for regional parliaments in three of the country’s federal states.
But the timing meant that it was seen as a virtual referendum on Mrs Merkel’s controversial “open-door” refugee policy.
The results could seriously undermine the German chancellor as she tries to persuade EU leaders to agree to a deal with Turkey to resolve the migrant crisis.
Mrs Merkel’s Christian Democrat party (CDU) was beaten in its stronghold of Baden-Württemberg for the first time in more than 50 years, according to exit polls.
Most damaging of all for Mrs Merkel, the far-Right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party stormed to its best election results ever on a campaign that focused almost exclusively on an anti-migrant message.
In the East German state of Saxony-Anhalt, where the CDU managed to cling on to first place, celebrations were muted as the AfD secures a shock second place with 23 per cent of the vote.
The AfD won seats in all three state parliaments and emerged from the night as a political force Mrs Merkel can no longer afford to ignore.
But Mrs Merkel can point to the Greens’ success as evidence that her refugee policy is a vote-winner — just not with her party’s traditional voters.
