GELNHAUSEN, Germany (Reuters) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel

 Angela Merkel was booed and whistled at by supporters of the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) at a campaign rally on Monday as she sought to persuade voters to grant her a fourth term in next month's election. Frank Simon, reports.

Merkel acknowledged the protesters at the rally around 40 km (25 miles) east of Frankfurt, saying Germany was a "democracy where people can show their discontent". But she added: "Sometimes listening a bit isn't a bad thing".
