INTERNATIONAL: Germany seeks Snowden’s help in US spy case

Published:Saturday | November 2, 2013 | 8:53 AM

The German government said it is keen to hear directly from the fugitive NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden about the United States (US) spy agency's activities.



Reports that the US bugged Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone for years have caused a diplomatic rift.



Snowden's lawyer said there could be a meeting with German investigators in Moscow, but not Germany.



Earlier, the US Secretary of State John Kerry, said that in some cases, US spying had gone too far.



Snowden fled to Russia in June after leaking details of far-reaching US telephone and Internet espionage.
