Transatlantic spying spat: Europeans ask if they can trust US 'allies'

Fresh claims that Washington has bugged EU embassies are causing a major diplomatic spat between Obama’s administration and its European partners. EU officials want to understand why the US targeted them with wiretapping and internet surveillance. In this part of the programme, we look at the fallout from this complex spying scandal on Transatlantic relations.

With our guests:

  • Ellen Wasylina, US political analyst;
  • Richard Yung, French Senator with the Socialist Party.

Watch the second part.

Programme produced by Isabelle Romero
