An aerial view over the British embassy (centre L) Hotel Adlon (lower L) the Acadamy of Arts and the U.S. Embassy (top) between the Holocaust memorial (top L) and the public square Pariser Platz with the Brandenburg Gate (top R) towards the Tiergarten in Berlin October 18, 2013. Documents leaked by former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden show that Britain's surveillance agency is operating a network of "electronic spy posts" from within a stone's throw of the Bundestag and German chancellor's office, the Independent reported. NSA documents, in conjunction with aerial photographs and information about past spying activities in Germany, suggest that Britain is operating its own covert listening station close to the German parliament, and Chancellor Angela Merkel's offices in the Chancellery, using hi-tech equipment housed on the embassy roof, the British newspaper reported.
