German chancellor says trust damaged by reports that U.S. tapped her phone
BERLIN -- German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday that trust between Europe and the United States must be "reestablished" after claims the U.S. National Security Agency eavesdropped on her cell phone. Merkel commented as she arrived at a summit of European Union leaders in Brussels, Belgium, which risks being overshadowed by anger about allegations the United States has been spying on its allies.
