U.S. President Barack Obama knew since 2010 his intelligence service was eavesdropping on German leader Angela Merkel and even asked for more data on her, a newspaper reported October 27, 2013, a day after reports alleged he told her he had had no idea. Citing a U.S. intelligence source familiar with the operation to bug Merkel's phone, Bild am Sonntag newspaper said U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) chief Keith Alexander informed Obama in person about it in 2010.
