Germany Seeks Answers Over U.S. Spy Allegations

Germany summoned the U.S. ambassador "after allegations of American spying erupted anew, threatening to further damage one of Washington's most important alliances," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"The German federal prosecutor announced that a 31-year-old German had been arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of working for foreign intelligence agencies. The arrested man was an employee of the German foreign-intelligence agency, known as the BND... The worker initially raised suspicions because he apparently tried to contact Russian spies, but then told investigators he had been passing information to U.S. intelligence."
