The German authorities have summoned the US ambassador in Berlin after a man was arrested on suspicion of spying.

The US diplomat "was asked to help in the swift clarification" of the case.

German officials confirmed the arrest but released no other details.

US-German ties were strained after allegations last year that the US National Security Agency bugged Chancellor Angela Merkel's phone as part of a huge surveillance programme.
