BERLIN, Sept 29 — Germany’s federal cybersecurity watchdog, the BSI, is conducting a technical examination of a mobile phone manufactured by China’s Xiaomi Corp, a spokesperson for the interior ministry told Reuters today.

The spokesperson did not provide further details on what kind of examination the agency was carrying out.
