Bishops fear FRA surveillance

Swedish bishop Esbjörn Hagberg, and three other bishops, are worried their phone calls are being secretly monitored. The bishops, who say they often have emotionally sensitive conversations with people over the telephone and internet, are to pay a visit to the National Defence Radio Establishment, Sweden's NSA, to air their concerns.

"We want to make sure no one is listening in on those sensitive conversations," Esbjörn Hagberg told the Karlstad paper Nya Wermlands-Tidningen.
