BERLIN - The US National Security Agency (NSA) tried to spy on industrial group Siemens with the help of German intelligence, Bild am Sonntag reported, in another potentially embarrassing development for Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Allegations that the domestic BND intelligence agency helped the NSA spy on European officials and firms have strained Germany's ruling coalition, which comprises Merkel's conservatives and the center-left Social Democrats.

The scandal has also dented the personal popularity of Merkel, whose office is in charge of the intelligence service.
