Mid of Rageh Omaar, journalist and panel host, and rest of panel applauding AUDIO: applause-----STORYLINE:US Secretary of State, John Kerry, became the most senior member of the presidential administration to speak out about the ongoing US spying row on Thursday, telling a conference in London that US surveillance may have gone too far. Speaking via video link from Washington, Kerry said: "In some cases, I acknowledge, as has the president, that some of these actions have reached too far and we are going to make sure that that does not happen in the future."However, he also defended the need for an increased US surveillance, adding: "We have actually prevented airplanes from going down, buildings being blown up and people from being assassinated because we've been able to learn ahead of time of the plans."Kerry's comments come after a week of new revelations over the extent of activities by the US National Security Agency (NSA) abroad.A document from NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden, published this week by German magazine Der Spiegel, describes a signals intelligence program called "Stateroom" in which US, British, Australian and Canadian embassies house surveillance equipment to collect electronic communications.Those countries, along with New Zealand, have an intelligence-sharing agreement known as "Five Eyes".The reports sparked an outcry from governments across Asia, with officials calling on the US and its allies to explain themselves.The embassy spying allegations follow other reports that the US has spied on the telephone communications of as many as 35 foreign leaders.In Europe, Germany's top security official said on Friday he will try and find a way for Edward Snowden to speak to German officials if the former National Security Agency analyst is willing to provide details about the NSA's activities including the alleged surveillance of Chancellor Angela Merkel's cellphone.The comments by Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich came after a German opposition lawmaker travelled to Moscow and met Snowden. The lawmaker, Hans-Christian Stroebele, said he received a letter from Snowden to German authorities that he planned to present later Friday.(****END****)
