US President Barack Obama has suggested there may be a review of surveillance by the National Security Agency in the wake of a series of spying revelations.

He said in light of disclosures that have taken place and public concerns about the programmes there may be another way of skinning the cat.

But Obama said ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden had caused "unnecessary damage" by leaking documents.

He declined to say whether or not Snowden could be offered an amnesty.

Edward Snowden fled the US in late May, taking a huge cache of secret documents with him.
