    Obama 'approved tapping Merkel's phone 3 years ago'
    Mr Obama was told of the secret monitoring of Mrs Merkel by General Keith Alexander, the head of the NSA, in 2010, according to Bild am Sonntag, a German newspaper. 

    President Barack Obama was personally informed about secret US monitoring of Angela Merkel three years ago, according to latest reports on the eavesdropping affair.

    The President allowed the National Security Agency (NSA) to continue spying on the German chancellor, it was claimed.

    Mr Obama was told of the secret monitoring of Mrs Merkel by General Keith Alexander, the head of the NSA, in 2010, according to Bild am Sonntag, a German newspaper.

    “Obama did not stop the action at that time but allowed it to continue,” a US intelligence source close to the NSA operation told the Sunday newspaper.

    The White House later commissioned an extensive NSA dossier about Mrs Merkel, according to Bild.
