Germans angry over second US spy suspect

By Agencies in Berlin and Washington ( China Daily ) Updated: 2014-07-11 07:05:29

German politicians reacted angrily on Wednesday to news of a suspected US spy in the Defense Ministry, a disclosure coming only days after the arrest of a German foreign intelligence agency worker who is suspected of being a CIA informant.

After the authorities conducted searches in connection with the second alleged spying case, Chancellor Angela Merkel's coalition partners said Washington should remove any US embassy staff involved and cease spying on its ally.

Security sources said the latest suspect was from the military and worked in the Defense Ministry in Berlin, but no arrest appeared to have been made. Other sources close to the investigation said the suspect was a German Foreign Ministry official on assignment at the Defense Ministry.
