COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Sweden’s defense minister wants Denmark to explain how come the United States could eavesdrop on leading politicians and senior officials in Europe, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Danish broadcaster DR reported that a probe with the Danish military intelligence agency into the the National Security Agency’s surveillance from Denmark during the years 2012 and 2014 show that NSA eavesdropped on political leaders and officials in Germany, France, Sweden and Norway. The set-up was code-named “Operation Dunhammer.” The Danish government was going to be quizzed on the topic in parliament later Monday.
