German Chancellor Angela Merkel attends a news conference after a meeting with East German state premiers in BerlinBy Alexandra Hudson BERLIN (Reuters) - Angela Merkel said on Saturday that new allegations of U.S. spying showed Berlin and Washington were completely at odds over how they viewed the role of intelligence, and she hoped German action would persuade the United States not to spy on partners. Her comments to German broadcaster ZDF come two days after her government told the CIA station chief in Berlin to leave the country, in a dramatic display of anger after German officials unearthed two suspected spies. On Friday, White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters "when differences arise, we're committed to resolving those differences through the established private channels... we don't believe that trying to resolve them through the media is appropriate." The scandal has chilled relations with Washington to levels not seen since Merkel's predecessor opposed the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Newport and Camel cigarettes are stacked on a shelf inside a tobacco store in New YorkBy Anjali Athavaley NEW YORK (Reuters) - The enduring popularity of menthol may be a big motivator behind Reynolds American Inc's interest in buying smaller rival Lorillard Inc , which has the best-selling U.S. cigarette brand with the additive. While potential cost savings from economies of scale in a declining industry may be the main driver for the multi-billion-dollar deal, Lorillard's leading U.S. menthol cigarette Newport is another key draw. Menthol cigarettes have roughly a 28 percent market share in the United States, according to market research firm Euromonitor International. Adding Newport to its product lineup would allow Reynolds, maker of Camel cigarettes, to broaden its reach among minority and younger smokers.
