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…)
