    Germany said it’s following up on a report that the United States used Danish intelligence to spy on European officials as France warned Monday that alleged U.S. spying on European allies would be “extremely serious” if confirmed.

    According to Danish state broadcaster DR, the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) has used a partnership with Denmark’s foreign intelligence unit to spy on senior officials of neighboring countries, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
