France and Mexico are angrily demanding explanations from the United States following new spying allegations leaked by former U.S. security contractor Edward Snowden.

French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said Monday that he had called in the U.S. ambassador to explain an article in Le Mondenewspaper about large-scale spying on French citizens by the U.S. National Security Agency.

The article alleged that the NSA had gathered tens of millions French phone records over a one-month period. Fabius called the claims, “shocking.”

Meanwhile, Mexico reacted angrily Monday to an article published in the German weekly Der Spiegel, in which Snowden accused the NSA of accessing the e-mail of former Mexican President Felipe Calderon. Mexico’s foreign ministry called the practice “unacceptable, illegal and against Mexican and international law.

Snowden, who has taken refuge in Russia, is wanted in the U.S. for espionage and other charges, after leaking details of the NSA’s worldwide spying activities.
