The president of the European Parliament, Martin Schulz, has said he is "deeply shocked" by allegations that US intelligence services have been spying on EU offices.

A report in Germany's Der Spiegel magazine claims key offices in the US and Europe were bugged.

Journalists at the publication said the information was leaked to them by fugitive ex-CIA analyst Edward Snowden.

Mr Schulz said: "I am deeply shocked because I think the United States should treat the European Union not like an enemy."
