Sydney: Australian embassies are part of a US-led global spying network and are being secretly used to intercept calls and data across Asia, according to media reports Thursday.





The top secret Defence Signals Directorate operates the clandestine surveillance facilities at embassies without the knowledge of most Australian diplomats, according to Australia's Fairfax Media's reports.

"Fairfax Media has been told that signals intelligence collection takes place from embassies in Jakarta, Bangkok, Hanoi, Beijing and Dili, and High Commissions in Kuala Lumpur and Port Moresby, as well as other diplomatic posts," Fairfax said Thursday.

Some of the details are revealed in a secret US National Security Agency document leaked by exiled American former CIA employer and whistle-blower Edward Snowden and published by Germany's Der Spiegel.
