Austria: "unnamed party" spied and aided US Intel

Austria accused “an unnamed party” after reports suggested that German intelligence, BND, helped the US spy on European targets from companies to politicians.  
 
"Austria demands clarification," Interior Minister Johanna Mikl-Leitner said.
 
German media, quoting leaked documents, said European firms and French politicians were among those monitored.
 
It said Germany's national intelligence agency, the BND, was working on behalf of the US National Security Agency.
 
Ms Mikl-Leitner said there was no evidence yet it had been a target, but warned it was "not far-fetched to suspect that Austria was also spied on".
 
"Today we have filed a legal complaint with the prosecutor's office against an unknown entity due to secret intelligence services to Austria's disadvantage," she added.
