Anger over reports German double-agent spied for US

Surveillance cameras are pictured outside the headquarters of the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) in Berlin, on March 31, 2014German authorities have arrested a suspected double-agent accused of spying for the US on a parliamentary panel investigating NSA surveillance, media reports said Friday. The suspect is an employee of Germany’s foreign intelligence service who was passing information to US spies, said the reports, which threaten to undermine efforts to repair US-German ties after last year’s shock revelations of widespread US snooping. The federal prosecutor general confirmed that a 31-year-old German was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of acting for a foreign intelligence service, without specifying which one. “At the present time we are issuing no further information on the proceedings,” a spokeswoman for the federal prosecutor’s office told AFP.
