Berlin (AFP) - Germany expelled the US intelligence station (visit) chief in Berlin Thursday over alleged spying by Washington, the government said in a highly unusual move among close NATO allies. "The representative of the US intelligence services at the embassy of the United States of America has been told to leave Germany," government spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a statement. Seibert said the demand was based on two formal probes by German federal prosecutors of suspected spying for Washington announced in the last week "as well as outstanding questions over the last several months about the activities of the US secret services in Germany". "The government takes these developments very seriously," he said.
