German court says city of Mainz must consider diesel ban

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German court ruled on Wednesday that the city of Mainz, near financial center Frankfurt, must consider bans of diesel vehicles if alternative measures fail to reduce air pollution sufficiently.

Environmental lobby group DUH had sued the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, home to Mainz, calling for a ban of diesel vehicles in Mainz.
