Edward Snowden's aide Sarah Harrison turns up in Berlin as pressure mounts for a full investigation into US spying in Germany.
Germany has decided against launching a formal inquiry into accusations of NSA espionage in the country. Revelations by Edward Snowden do not provide "concrete evidence" for the offense, prosecutors said.
The Bundestag has heard evidence from the German chancellor about spying on allies by both American and German intelligence services. Despite hours of questioning, no evidence of serious wrongdoing emerged.
Wikileaks has released 2,420 documents from German government agencies relating to the inquiry into surveillance by Germany's intelligence agency and its cooperation with the US' National Security Agency (NSA).
The anti-secrecy platform WikiLeaks has said it would work with tech firms to fix security flaws before publishing them. Customers' trust in firms like Google and Apple has already been eroded by the Snowden leaks.
