Data leaked by fugitive US analyst Edward Snowden showed ex-President Felipe Calderon’s emails were hacked in 2010, Germany’s Der Spiegel reports.

Mexico’s foreign ministry said such spying was “unacceptable, illegal” and contrary to good relations.

It urged President Obama to complete an investigation into the allegations.

In an official statement, the Mexican foreign ministry said it would soon re-iterate the importance of such an investigation through diplomatic means.

“In a relationship between neighbours and partners, there is no place for the alleged practices,” it said.
