BERLIN (Reuters) - A British vote to leave the European Union could spur similar referendum votes in other countries, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said on Friday.

Schaeuble, speaking at a conference hosted by Deutsche Bank in Berlin, said other countries might follow suit with referendums of their own if Britain voted on June 23 to exit the European Union.
