Germany reached a deal in talks with Canada's Magna, General Motors and governments to save Opel, German government leaders said on Saturday after a marathon six-hour meeting in the chancellery.

Finance Minister Peer Steinbrueck and Economy Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg told journalists outside the chancellery shortly after 2 a.m. that a deal on bridge financing and a trustee model for the German carmaker Opel were agreed.
