German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the target of US snooping on her mobile phone, said Thursday that such conduct between friends was unacceptable.

"Spying between friends, that's just not done," Merkel said as she arrived for a two-day EU leaders summit where the growing spy scandal has hijacked the agenda.
