    The German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) has been spying on the government of Israel, the interior ministries of Austria and Belgium, the UK Defense Ministry and the headquarters of OPEC and IMF, German media reported Saturday.

    BERLIN (Sputnik) — According to Der Spiegel, the BND also spied on NASA and the US Air Force. The US State Department and the employees of EU countries' embassies were also the targets of the BND surveillance.

    In October, it was revealed that Germany's BND intelligence agency had been spying on EU and US government agencies and embassies for years.

    In 2013, the BND made a decision to stop spying on EU member states and NATO but, according to the German publication, some of those targets are still being monitored.
