(AP) Germany's respected news weekly Der Spiegel has mistakenly published an obituary for former U.S. President George H.W. Bush.


The unfinished obituary appeared on Der Spiegel's website for only a few minutes Sunday before it was spotted by Internet users and removed.


In it, the magazine's New York correspondent Marc Pitzke describes Bush as a colorless politician whose image only improved when it was compared to the later presidency of his son, George W. Bush.


Bush was hospitalized in Houston Nov. 23 for treatment of a bronchitis-related cough. He was moved to intensive care on Dec. 23 after he developed a fever.


A family spokesman says the 88-year-old former president was moved out of intensive care into a regular hospital room again Saturday after his condition improved.
