BERLIN: The United States taps half a billion phone calls, emails and text messages in Germany in a typical month and has classed its biggest European ally as a target similar to China, according to secret US documents quoted by a German newsmagazine.

Moreover the European Union said on Sunday said it has questioned US authorities about alleged US spying on EU offices and was waiting for Washington’s response.

“We have immediately been in contact with the US authorities in Washington DC and in Brussels and have confronted them with the press reports, “ the European Commission said in a statement.

“They have told us they are checking on the accuracy of the information released yesterday and will come back to us,” it said referring to a report on the spying claims by German weekly Der Spiegel.
