Denmark’s intelligence service worked with its U.S. counterpart to collect information on European leaders including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, according to several reports in Danish media.
According to Danmarks Radio (DR), the Danish foreign secret service helped the U.S. collect intelligence on European leaders, including Merkel, from 2012 to 2014 under the codename “Operation Dunhammer.”
Efforts by the U.S. government to collect such intelligence during that timeframe were previously reported. But the role of Denmark’s Defense Intelligence Service, known in Denmark by its acronym FE, was not previously known.
The U.S. National Security Agency reportedly worked with FE to gain access to text messages and phone calls with officials from European countries.
