US Ambassador Summoned on Angela Merkel Phone Spying Suspicion

In breaking news, Germany has summoned the U.S. ambassador on suspicion of spying on Angela Merkel's cellphone according to Reuters. A report that the NSA is tapping the phone of Angela Merkel is big headlines right now in Germany. The German Government already released a statement that there is strong evidence for spying on Merkel's phone. Angela Merkel is often said to run Germany from her cellphone. She is actually not using a smartphone. She is an SMS wizard on a classic cellphone.

The White House has said already that they are not tapping Merkel's phone, but who is believing them? Apparently also not the German government, else they would not have summoned the U.S. ambassador.
