This news follows a phone call between President Obama and Angela Merkel, in which Merkel complained to Obama about reports that the U.S. may have been spying on her mobile phone. The White House said Wednesday that the U.S. is not currently monitoring Merkel's phone.

The NSA document provided by Snowden also includes an acknowledgment that tracking the phone calls of foreign leaders generated "little reportable intelligence."
