    A protestor bleeds after clashing with police during a demonstration against the government in front of the People's Party headquarter in Madrid, Spain, Thursday, July 18, 2013. Spain’s Prime Minister on Monday brushed off demands he should resign after text messages emerged showing he had a cozy relationship with a disgraced political party treasurer who amassed 47 million euros ($61 million) in secret Swiss bank accounts. The spectacle of alleged greed and corruption has enraged Spaniards hurting from austerity and sky high unemployment with no end in sight. (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki)

    Amaya Munoz Garcia, 31 years old, cries as she receives support from a member of the Victims' Mortgage Platform (PAH), partly seen, while she waits to be evicted in Madrid, Spain, Tuesday, July 16, 2013. Munoz Garcia stopped paying rent after she lost her job ten months ago. She started to receive 670 euros ($879) per month as her unemployment benefit as she was looked for a new job which she has never found. She could not afford to pay the 640 euros ($840) a month rent and electricity bill and buy food at the same time, and the loss of both of her parents during a short period in the last two years left her without a close family support. Time has past and she still has not found a job. She has accumulated a debt of 8,000 euros ($ 10,503) including 2,000 euros ($ 2,625) interest. The eviction was finally postponed with the help of the Victims' Mortgage Platform (PAH) and they try to negotiated a social rent and a payment plan. (AP Photo/Andres Kudacki)

    FILE - In this June 28, 2013 file picture Social Democratic Party chancellor candidate Peer Steinbrueck speaks at a state party conference in Saarbruecken, Germany, Allegations of widespread U.S. data surveillance have created turbulence for Angela Merkel on what so far looked like a smooth cruise to a third term as German chancellor, even though it remains to be seen whether the flap will threaten her seriously. Merkel's center-left opponents have seized on disclosures of National Security Agency surveillance programs by leaker Edward Snowden to assert that she hasn't been doing enough to confront Washington and protect Germans' personal data _ and to cast doubt on officials' assertions that they didn't know of the programs. The opposition apparently hopes that the issue will breathe life into a so-far stumbling and gaffe-prone campaign for Sept. 22 parliamentary elections. A healthy economy, low unemployment and perceptions that Merkel has managed Europe's debt crisis well have bolstered the chancellor. Merkel's center-left challenger, Peer Steinbrueck, is suggesting that the government turned a blind eye to violations of Germans' rights and that Merkel violated her oath of office, in which she swore to "keep damage from" her people.
