German Chancellor Wants to Keep European E-mails Private

Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany has embraced proposals to create European data networks that would keep emails and other communications on the European side of the Atlantic, farther from prying American eyes, and said she would raise the matter with President François Hollande of France. “We will, above all, discuss which European providers we have who offer security for our citizens,” Ms. Merkel said in her weekly podcast.
