The official is said to have acted as a CIA contact at the US embassy, reports say, in a scandal that has infuriated German politicians.

A German intelligence official was arrested last week on suspicion of spying.

An inquiry has also begun into a German defence ministry worker, reports said.

"The representative of the US intelligence services at the embassy of the United States of America has been told to leave Germany," government spokesman Steffen Seibert said.

I did warn you all that Germans are very sensitive about being spied on. Heck, Google street view is not particularly tolerated.

I know, and believe me, I haven't spied on a single German since you warned me.  :silly:
