German unemployment unexpectedly increases in Sept

BERLIN, Sept 29 (Reuters) - German unemployment rose slightly in September, confounding forecasts, but the jobless rate in Europe's biggest economy remained at a record low, figures from the Federal Labour Office showed on Thursday.

The seasonally adjusted jobless total increased by 1,000 to 2.680 million, the Labour Office said. That compared with a consensus forecast in a Reuters poll for unemployment to fall by 5,000.

The adjusted unemployment rate remained at 6.1 percent, the lowest level since German reunification in 1990.
