Smile Angie! Merkel's flat caught on museum camera
BERLIN, Mar 26 (Reuters) A 24-hour security camera on top of Berlin's Pergamon Museum was able to film German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Berlin apartment for several years before authorities realised, a newspaper reported today.
The camera was not only able to film the outside of Merkel's apartment, opposite the museum in the centre of the German capital, but even recorded shots of Merkel's husband, Joachim Sauer, in the living room, according to Bild am Sonntag.
A spokesman for Germany's federal criminal police office (BKA) confirmed the case today and said the circumstances were being investigated.
A museum spokesman told Bild am Sonntag the camera had been adjusted on Friday to prevent further filming.
