BEIJING - A Chinese Internet information body has complained of "unscrupulous" surveillance by US intelligence agencies over the rest of the world, and called for an immediate cessation of the practice.

A report by China's Internet Media Research Center published on Monday said the US has taken advantage of its political, economic, military and technological hegemony to spy without restraint on other countries, including its allies.

In particular, it described China as a main target of the US clandestine secret surveillance.

Chinese authorities have looked into the US National Security Agency (NSA)'s secret surveillance program codenamed PRISM, which is revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

An investigation carried out by various Chinese government departments over several months "confirmed the existence of snooping activities directed against China," the report said.
