A desk with surveillance equipment is seen on display inside a room at the Stasi secret police museum in Berlin October 24, 2013. State surveillance is a highly sensitive subject in a country haunted by memories of eavesdropping by the Stasi secret police in East Germany where Chancellor Angela Merkel grew up. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said on Thursday she had made it clear to U.S. President Barack Obama that spying on allies is not acceptable. (REUTERS/Pawel Kopczynski) less
