German government deport a representative of the US intelligence agencies in Berlin in view of the emerging US spy row.

The German government took US espionage cases “very seriously”, Xinhua cited German government spokesman Steffen Seibert as saying Thursday in a statement.

The representative of the US intelligence agencies at the US embassy in Berlin was asked to leave Germany, Seibert said.

The German Parliamentary Control Panel, which oversees German intelligence services, held a special meeting earlier in the day to deal with the latest reports of a German double-agent and US spying in the German defence ministry.

The decision to expel the US representative was made in “response to a failed cooperation in efforts to clarify the US monitoring cases”, panel chairman Clemens Binninger was quoted by German media N-TV as saying.
