BERLIN (Reuters) - German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said on Thursday the government would not get involved in the operating business of airline Lufthansa (LHAG.DE) after shareholders approved a 9 billion euro ($10 billion) government bailout.

He said the rescue package meant the government could prevent a hostile takeover.
