Der Spiegel cover story on NSA surveillance of Europe

NSA spying is big news in the US, but huge news in Europe, too. This week, the cover story of German weekly newsmagazine Der Spiegel is all about the "Top secret documents that detail the mass scope of efforts by the United States to spy on Germany and Europe."

"Each month, the NSA monitors a half a billion communications and EU buildings are bugged. The scandal poses a threat to trans-Atlantic relations."

Part I, Part II, Part III. By Laura Poitras, Marcel Rosenbach, Fidelius Schmid, Holger Stark and Jonathan Stock.
