Mexico, Brazil angry over new U.S. spy claims

The fallout over leaked data on the scope of U.S. surveillance programmes continues to reverberate around the world. On Monday, Mexican authorities said they were questioning the U.S. ambassador following allegations the United States spied on President Enrique Pena Nieto before he was elected. Brazil's news show Fantastico, which aired late Sunday, said Brazilian leader Dilma Rousseff had been a target as well. The report was based on documents journalist Glenn Greenwald received from American ex-spy contractor Edward Snowden. Greenwald was listed as a co-contributor on the programme. Brazil echoed Mexico's outrage and said the claims would be a serious violation of sovereignty, if true. The Brazilian government was already angered about earlier leaks suggesting the United States was keeping tabs its citizens' emails and phone calls.
