German prosecutors are looking into another spying case. Reports say authorities searched the office and home of a man who allegedly passed information to US intelligence.
Wikileaks says its latest release of documents shows the wide reach of economic espionage conducted by the NSA in Germany. Documents released by the whistleblowers suggest an intense interest in the Greek debt crisis.
Germany's foreign minister has called on Washington to swiftly clarify what is and is not true regarding the latest NSA snooping allegations. There are reports that it spied on several cabinet ministers.
The US ambassador to Germany, John B. Emerson, has been called to a meeting at Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Office to explain recent WikiLeaks disclosures. Several lawmakers have joined in on demanding answers.
The former head of Angela Merkel's chancellery, Ronald Pofalla, has blamed the media for misinterpreting the ongoing NSA affair. Finding no fault in his behavior, he instead voiced concern about Germany's security.
