Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 22:26
The White House said on Thursday it was essential that the United States and Germany continue to cooperate after Germany took the unusual step of asking a American intelligence official at the U.S. Embassy in Berlin to leave the country.

Germany asks top U.S. intelligence official to leave over spy scandal

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 22:24

People pass te entrance to US embassy in BerlinBy Madeline Chambers BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany asked the top U.S. intelligence official at the Berlin embassy on Thursday to leave the country, a highly unusual step reflecting the deep anger within Angela Merkel's government at the discovery of two suspected U.S. spies within a week. The scandal has plunged ties between Germany and one of its closest allies to a new low following last year's revelations from former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden about widespread surveillance of Germans, including Merkel. "The request was made in light of the ongoing investigation by the chief federal prosecutor and questions that have been raised for months about the activities of U.S. intelligence services in Germany," Merkel's spokesman Steffen Seibert said.

Philadelphia mayor rebuked for response to fire that killed four children

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 22:06

Philadelphia Mayor Nutter participates in panel discussion during Peterson Foundation 2012 Fiscal Summit in WashingtonBy Daniel Kelley PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Relatives of least two of the four children killed in a weekend fire that destroyed eight homes in Philadelphia staged a sit-in at City Hall on Wednesday, demanding the mayor apologize for comments about the blaze they decried as insensitive. Mayor Michael Nutter accused some in the mainly Liberian immigrant neighborhood of spreading misinformation when he was confronted by claims from community members that firefighters were slow or inept in responding to Saturday's blaze. “I will not tolerate under any set of circumstances, incorrect information, allegations, innuendo or lies suggesting that members of the Philadelphia Fire Department did anything less than perform admirably in their service," Nutter told reporters on Monday. Patrick Sanyeah, a Liberian native whose 4-year-old son and newborn infant were among the four children who perished, called the mayor's remarks disrespectful.
