LONDON —

Newspaper reports say the latest documents leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden show that British and American intelligence agencies monitored the communications of an Israeli prime minister and European officials, among hundreds of other targets in some 60 countries.

The Guardian newspaper reported Friday that one 2009 document showed that Britain's eavesdropping agency, GCHQ, worked with the U.S.'s NSA to target an email address belonging to Israel's Ehud Olmert.

Other prominent targets included a top European Commission official responsible for competition policy, German government buildings and the Thales group, a defense company partly owned by the French government.

The report said the UN development program and the children's charity UNICEF, as well as several unnamed African heads of state, were among the spy agencies' targets.
