French president demands any US spying cease now

PARIS (AP) - French President Francois Hollande is demanding that the United States immediately stop its alleged eavesdropping of the European Union.

According to weekend reports, U.S. intelligence agencies have bugged EU offices in three cities.

Hollande said on Monday during a trip to western France that "We cannot accept this kind of behavior."

He says, "We demand that this cease immediately." He asked for an immediate explanation.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says he doesn't know the details of the allegations, but maintains that many nations undertake lots of different kinds of activities to protect their national interests.
