US Govt (NSA) caught stealing text messages of Chinese
The U.S. is stealing Chinese cell phone data, according to whistle-blower Edward Snowden.

The 29-year-old former National Security Agency contractor claims he has the evidence to prove that the U.S. government has hacked Chinese phone companies and stolen millions of text messages and other information.

The university, which is home to the mainland's six major backbone networks from where internet data from millions of Chinese citizens can be gathered, was breached as recently as January, Snowden said.

During the interview, Snowden also said the U.S. and UK had technology which gave them unauthorized access to Blackberry phones of delegates at two G20 summits in London in 2009.
