BEIJING (REUTERS) - China wants a clear explanation from Washington over a report that the US National Security Agency (NSA) infiltrated servers at the headquarters of Chinese telecoms giant Huawei Technologies Co., a Chinese foreign ministry spokesman said on Monday.

Mr Hong Lei said China was "extremely concerned" about the spying allegations.

"Recently, the international media has put out a lot of reports about the evesdropping, surveillance and stealing of secrets by the United States of other countries, including China," he told a regular briefing.

"China has already lodged many complaints with the United States about this. We demand that the United States makes a clear explanation and stop such acts."
