Protest rally at suspected German NSA site
Berlin: German police say several hundred people staged a protest at a suspected US surveillance facility near Frankfurt.
Protesters held up fake cameras in what they described as a bid to "spy" on the heavily secured military complex allegedly housing a snooping facility of the National Security Agency.
One protester wore a helmet bearing the phrase "democracy is watching you."
Police spokeswoman Andrea Loeb said some 450 protesters turned out for the rally today at the US military`s so-called Dagger Complex on the outskirts of Griesheim town.
Allegations by leaker Edward Snowden about the NSA`s wide-ranging spying activities targeting data and phone communication worldwide have caused concern in Germany, where protecting personal data is an especially sensitive topic.
