The White House refused to comment on whether the United States had snooped on German Chancellor Angela Merkel's cellphone communications and acknowledged on Thursday that claims of U.S. spying have created tensions with allies. She demanded clarification from Obama in a telephone conversation on Wednesday, telling him if such surveillance had taken place, it would represent a grave breach of trust.
