Combination photo of Germany's Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble (R) addressing a news conference in Berlin March 25, 2013, and the leader of the euro-critical Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD) party Bernd Lucke speaking to media during an election campaign in Berlin September 16, 2013. Angela Merkel's conservatives switched tactics September 18, 2013, four days before Germany's general election and attacked a eurosceptic party whose rapid rise endangers her centre-right coalition's bid to defend its majority in Sunday's vote. Merkel's Christian Democrats (CDU), which had deliberately ignored the small Alternative fuer Deutschland (AfD) so far in the campaign, deployed one of their most respected figures - Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble - to rip into the new party.
