    Documents leaked by former CIA agent Edward Snowden appear to show Britain spied on G20 delegates during meetings back in 2009, Britain's Guardian newspaper has reported. Among the officials targeted were delegates from NATO ally Turkey, and South Africa. According to the files, British spies tricked delegates into using specially prepared Internet cafés. Those cafés allowed the spies to intercept communications and monitor email messages and phone calls through delegates' BlackBerry devices. Al Jazeera's Laurence Lee reports from the G8 summit in Northern Ireland.
