  • The German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) ordered car giant Volkswagen to recall 2.4 million diesel vehicles following the diesel emissions scandal. "We require (Volkswagen) to recall the vehicles," a spokesman of the KBA was quoted by German television ARD as saying. The authority rejected the idea of "voluntary repair" proposed by the German carmaker to deal with vehicles sold in Germany that have been equipped with contentious emissions software, Xinhua news agency reported.
