By ASSOCIATED PRESS

REYKJAVIK, Iceland — The government of Iceland is investigating whether the US Embassy is spying on Icelandic citizens.

The Icelandic Ministry of Justice and Human Rights has launched an inquiry after other Nordic countries said they were investigating the practice in their countries.

US Embassy officials in Iceland have said no espionage is taking place but have confirmed that the embassy does have a counter-surveillance program in place to protect the embassy from security threats.

The inquiry in Iceland follows similar concerns expressed by governments in Sweden, Denmark and Norway after media reports publicized US embassy actions there.
