German economy grew by 1.3 percent in 2008

Official figures show the German economy grew by 1.3 percent last year.
The 2008 figure released Wednesday by the Federal Statistical Office compares with growth of 2.5 percent in Europe's biggest economy the previous year.
The economy went into recession in last year's third quarter.
The office did not provide an estimate of Germany's fourth-quarter economic performance. That is due in February.
