Merkel trumps Rice on power list

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has overtaken US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as the world's most powerful woman, says Forbes magazine.
Power changed hands after a two-year reign by Ms Rice, who came second in this year's top 100 list.

UK Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett put Britain at 29 but the UK PM's wife, Cherie Blair, slid out of the list altogether from 62nd place.
The index is based on visibility in the media as well as economic impact.
Mrs Merkel did not have any ranking in the Forbes top 100 index in 2005.
