According to WikiLeaks, NSA spied on three French presidents - Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande - by listening to their phones and intercepting their e-mails.
The Liberation newspaper wrote that the spying was described in five secret reports by NSA based on intercepting data transmitted via communication networks. The reports were made for US surveillance community, Liberation said. Only five documents were later shared with US closest allies - Great Britain, Australia, Canada and New Zealand - in the framework of the Five Eyes program of sharing intelligence.
