We have measured the forward-backward asymmetry in Z0→bb decays using hadronic events containing muons and electrons. The data sample corresponds to 118 200 hadronic events at √s≈Mz. From a fit to the single and dilepton p and P spectra, we determine Abb=0.130-0.042 +0.044 including the correction for B0-B0 mixing.
