Brazil this week admitted to spying on diplomats from countries including the US, Russia, and Iran, as part of a domestic program launched ten years ago under former President  Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. The program was first revealed in a Monday report from the newspaper Folha de São Paulo, which obtained documents from the Brazilian Intelligence Agency, commonly known as Abin. The revelations come at a sensitive time for current Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who has been among the most outspoken critics of the widespread surveillance conducted by the US National Security Agency (NSA). Among those targeted were Russian military personnel and Seyed Davood Mohseni Salehi Monfared, Irans ambassador to Cuba at the time.
