Germany’s foreign intelligence agency, BND, is accused of spying on the FBI and U.S. arms companies, according to a German radio station.

The Associated Press reports on the radio station’s claims:

The station claimed that Germany’s BND also spied on the International Criminal Court in The Hague, the World Health Organization, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and even a German diplomat who headed an EU observer mission to Georgia from 2008 to 2011.

It provided no source for its report, but the respected German weekly Der Spiegel also reported at the weekend that the BND targeted phone numbers and email addresses of officials in the United States, Britain, France, Switzerland, Greece, the Vatican and other European countries, as well as at international aid groups such as the Red Cross.

The BND is accused of using phone numbers and email addresses of officials in the U.S and a slew of European countries.

Germany strongly criticized the U.S. two years ago after reports surfaced that America was eavesdropping on the German officials, including Chancellor Angela Merkel.
