One of his colleagues who was working with Relotius on a story about the situation on the US-Mexican border grew suspicious of some of the details in the journalist's report.
Claas Relotius "made up stories and invented protagonists" in at least 14 out of 60 articles that appeared in the magazine's print and online editions, Spiegel wrote, warning that other outlets could also be affected.
"This has been uncovered as a result of tips, internal research and, ultimately, a comprehensive confession by the editor himself", the magazine said.
