Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy said Friday he would call in the US ambassador to Madrid to explain reports of US spying on the country, a close ally of Washington.

"We do not have evidence that Spain has been spied on ... but we are calling in the ambassador to get information," Rajoy said after an EU summit dominated by the growing scandal over US intelligence activities in supposedly friendly countries.
