BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany has narrowed its options for replacing Tornado fighter jets and will decide between European manufacturer Airbus and U.S. rival Boeing, German defence ministry sources said on Thursday.

The German government will make its final decision on the matter as soon as all information is on the table, the defence ministry sources said, adding that there was no timetable.
