A group of civil rights organizations in Germany are awarding Edward Snowden with a prize for whistleblowing. They decry his treatment by the US and want Germany to offer him aslyum.
Hundreds of millions of euros have been earmarked for Germany's Federal Intelligence Service (BND) to get its own presence in space. The chancellor's office is pushing the project, but critics are skeptical.
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.
Edward Snowden called on a Berlin audience via livestream to stand up and act on their freedoms – without asking permission. He also hinted at a new encryption technology he's co-developing to circumvent surveillance.
