US intelligence leaker Edward Snowden has alleged the National Security Agency engaged in industrial espionage.

In an interview in Germany, the former NSA contractor said the agency would spy on big German companies that competed with US firms.

Snowden, who was granted temporary asylum by Russia, also said he believed that US officials wanted to kill him.

His leaks caused outrage in Germany when it came to light that Chancellor Angela Merkel's phone had been bugged.
