Germany's BND foreign intelligence agency has issued German passports for Israel's Mossad secret service, the daily Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger quoted a former high-ranking BND member as saying on Saturday.

According to the official, Mossad agents are using German passports during their covert operations in Middle Eastern countries.

Reacting to the news report, an unidentified BND spokesman said, "Of course we also have a cooperation with Mossad. However we commenting on any documents which might have been forwarded." The number of issued German passports for Mossad operatives has reportedly increased dramatically since September 11, 2001.

Mossad used also passports from Canada and New Zealand in the 1990s.
