UK Monitored Politicians At G20 Summit

"Foreign politicians and officials who took part in two G20 summit meetings in London in 2009 had their computers monitored and their phone calls intercepted on the instructions of their British government hosts," according to documents seen by the Guardian. "Some delegates were tricked into using internet cafes which had been set up by British intelligence agencies to read their email traffic."

"The revelation comes as Britain prepares to host another summit on Monday - for the G8 nations, all of whom attended the 2009 meetings which were the object of the systematic spying."
