Germany is to investigate allegations by US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden that the US government bugged Chancellor Angela Merkel's phone, reports BBC.
Federal prosecutor Harald Range informed the German parliament's legal affairs committee that an investigation would be held into persons unknown.
Mrs Merkel has publicly asked for an explanation for the alleged spying by the National Security Agency (NSA).
The issue has strained relations between Berlin and Washington.
