Trending In Our News Feeds – Snowden says U.K. spied on global leaders. The Guardian revealed over the weekend that a British intelligence agency spied on delegates at two global summits in 2009. Documents handed to the paper by NSA leaker Edward Snowden show the Government Communications Headquarters set up dummy internet cafes, hacked into delegates’ smartphones, and kept a record of phone calls at two G20 summits hosted by Britain. The Guardian predicts the revelation will create tension at today’s U.K.-hosted G8 summit.
