Merkel: Allegations Of U.S. Spying

(AP) - German Chancellor Angela Merkel says that if allegations a German intelligence employee spied for the United States are proven true, that would be a "clear contradiction" of trust between the allies.

Merkel spoke Monday while visiting China about the arrest last week of a 31-year-old man suspected of spying for foreign intelligence services.

German media, without naming sources, have reported that the man worked for Germany's foreign intelligence service and had passed on information to U.S. agents since 2012.

Merkel says, "If the allegations are true, it would be for me a clear contradiction as to what I consider to be trusting cooperation between agencies and partners."
