BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Commission has set a deadline of Jan. 28 to decide whether to approve the planned rail merger of Siemens and Alstom.

The deadline was suspended early in August, but the Commission, which rules on mergers in the 28-country European Union, stated in an online filing issued on Friday that this suspension had ended on Sept. 4 and a new deadline had been set.
