Thursday - 10/24/2013, 10:07am EDT

More international leaders are voicing their concern with US intelligence activities. French newspaper La Monde reports the NSA collected more than 70 million French telephone records in a 30 day period. Now, the French government says it wants a discussion on personal data protection at the European Union Summit that begins today. National Intelligence Director James Clapper denies the allegations in a recent statement. He says the U-S has no plans to discuss its national intelligence activities. German Chancellor Angela Merkel complained to President Barack Obama yesterday after she received information the NSA may be tapping her cell phone.
