President Barack Obama apologised to German Chancellor Angela Merkel for US spies bugging her calls, German magazine Der Spiegel reported.
Merkel reportedly called the US leader last week to seek clarification over bugging reports and was assured by the President that she was not "currently" being monitored.
It has since been revealed that Merkel's calls may have been monitored by the US since 2002.
