Jacques Follorou et Glenn Greenwald for Le Monde:

Amongst the thousands of documents extracted from the NSA by its ex-employee there is a graph which describes the extent of telephone monitoring and tapping (DNR – Dial Number Recognition) carried out in France. It can be seen that over a period of thirty days – from 10 December 2012 to 8 January 2013, 70,3 million recordings of French citizens’ telephone data were made by the NSA.

At this point it would be far more surprising if the NSA was not recording phone calls in a country — any country. (I bet Madagascar is safe…)
