MADRID (AP) — A Spanish newspaper has published a document it says shows the U.S. National Security Agency spied on more than 60 million phone calls in Spain in one month alone.

The report in El Mundo newspapers comes a week after Le Monde reported similar allegations of U.S. spying in France, and German magazine Der Spiegel reported that a document shows that Washington tapped Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone.

El Mundo said that a document provided by the former NSA contractor Edward Snowden shows that the NSA monitored the phone calls from Dec. 10, 2012, until Jan. 8, 2013, but not their content.
