German authorities have arrested a German man on suspicion of being a double agent for the United States. The man has been linked to spying on a panel investigating activities by the National Security Agency in Germany. But the 31-year-old reportedly worked for Germany's BND foreign intelligence agency and is suspected of providing the U.S. with information about a German parliamentary panel set up to investigate allegations that the NSA spied on German lawmakers, including Chancellor Angela Merkel . German officials initially arrested the alleged double agent on suspicion that he was spying for Russia before the man reportedly admitted otherwise.
