A general view shows the U.S. embassy in a thermal image taken with an infrared camera in Berlin October 27, 2013. A German newspaper said on Sunday that U.S. President Barack Obama knew his intelligence service was eavesdropping on Angela Merkel as long ago as 2010, contradicting reports that he had told the German leader he did not know. The U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) denied that Obama had been informed about the operation by the NSA chief in 2010, as reported by the German newspaper.
