The CIA station chief in Berlin ordered out by Germany over fresh allegations of U.S. spying will leave the country by the end of the week, a German newspaper reported on Tuesday. Bild mass daily cited security sources, adding it was only a "matter of days" now. The German Foreign Office declined to comment and referred to previous statements that the government expected the intelligence representative to leave "promptly". Bild said it had significantly increased pressure on the U.S. Public outrage at the revelations put pressure on German Chancellor Angela Merkel to take action against the United States.
