Al-Jazeera's internal communications hacked by the NSA

The following is part of a CPJ Internet Channel post by Mhamed Krichen, CPJ Board member:

There seems to be no end to American surprises when it comes to Al-Jazeera. The latest was revealed by Der Spiegel, the German weekly news magazine, which reported the U.S. National Security Agency hacked into our internal communications system, according to documents provided by Edward Snowden, the former NSA security analyst.

The magazine said the document "did not reveal to what extent the intelligence agency spied on journalists or managers of the media company, or whether the surveillance is ongoing."
