BBC News - Germany accused of spying on Kerry and Clinton
OK, accidental, huh? What a shame, Germany, after all your uppity outrage regarding the NSA.Germany's foreign intelligence agency eavesdropped on US Secretary of State John Kerry and his predecessor Hillary Clinton, German media reports say.
Der Spiegel magazine says the calls were collected accidentally and the recordings were destroyed immediately.
Mr Kerry has reportedly spoken to his German counterpart, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, about the claims.
Correspondents say the reports will embarrass Germany after a row about the US spying on Chancellor Angela Merkel.
The fact is, all nations spy on each other, if they can. Much ado about nothing, that NSA scandal.
