Austria Files Criminal Complaint For Alleged Surveillance

Austria is asking for a legal investigation of allegations that the German intelligence service helped the U.S. National Security Agency eavesdrop on the country's political leaders. Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner said Tuesday her ministry has filed a criminal complaint against unnamed persons or entities on suspicion of "secret intelligence activities to the detriment of Austria." The complaint opens the way for prosecutors to start an investigation.
