Germany investigating leak at intelligence hq

The German government says it has ordered an investigation into a possible security breach concerning plans for the country's new intelligence headquarters being built in Berlin.
Chancellor Angela Merkel's spokesman said Monday that a commission at the BND intelligence service was looking into media reports that blueprints for the future headquarters had disappeared.
The reports, which cited anonymous sources, alleged the missing plans included sensitive information about the location of the alarm system and anti-terror facilities.
Spokesman Steffen Seibert says the government has not yet been able to confirm the authenticity of the reports.
The BND is currently located in Pullach near Munich, but construction is under way in Berlin to move some 4,000 employees to the new headquarters by 2014.
