A Spanish lawmaker talks on his cell phone at the Spain's parliament, in Madrid, Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013. Speaking in parliament, Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said Spain was taking the surveillance allegations seriously and that the head of Spain's intelligence services will address Parliament over allegations that Spain was a target for surveillance by the U.S. National Security Agency. He reiterated that if confirmed, such activity is “inappropriate and unacceptable between partners and friends.” Up to now the Spanish government insists it is unaware of any U.S. spying.
