German Chancellor Angela Merkel says reports of the United States spying in Germany – including bugging her mobile phone – are straining transatlantic ties.

Merkel told German members of parliament that the alleged spying by the National Security Agency must be explained.

The German Chancellor noted that it is important that trust be rebuilt for the future.
