Germany's 'Watergate'
« on: Thursday, 05 March, 2015 @ 14:25:09 »
German BND spy agency hit by 'Watergate' leak

Germany's Federal Intelligence Service (BND) is dealing with what media have described as its own "Watergate" scandal, after taps were removed from its unfinished new Berlin headquarters.

The removal happened on Tuesday and left large parts of the building flooded, police say.

"It is Germany's most closely guarded building site," Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper says, adding that while there is no clue who caused the damage, it will take millions to repair.

In 2011, German weekly magazine Focus reported that detailed blueprints for the new headquarters had gone missing.
