Germany opens criminal probe over Merkel phone tapping

German Chancellor Angela Merkel checks her mobile phone during a session of the Bundestag (lower house of parliament) in Berlin, on November 9, 2012Germany’s federal prosecutors said Wednesday they had opened an investigation over alleged snooping on Chancellor Angela Merkel’s mobile phone by the US National Security Agency (NSA) in a case that has soured relations. The long-anticipated probe, which follows an explosive allegation last year that US spies had eavesdropped on Merkel’s mobile phone conversations in the past, is against persons unknown, chief federal prosecutor Harald Range said. “I informed parliament’s legal affairs committee that I have started a preliminary investigation over tapping of a mobile phone of the chancellor,” he said after addressing the committee.
