‘BND spied on Fabius’:


Germany’s foreign intelligen­ce service spied on targets including French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, the FBI and the UN children’s fund, a media report said Wednesday.

The latest news report on the BND spy service fuels a debate in Germany about state surveillan­ce that was kicked off by the revelation­s of fugitive US intelligen­ce contractor Edward Snowden.

The claims are awkward for Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose office oversees Germany’s intelligen­ce activities, after she angrily told Washington in 2013 that “spying among friends isn’t on” following reports the US National Security Agency (NSA) had bugged her cellphone. (AFP)
