[TOKYO] The US spied on senior Japanese politicians and major companies including giant conglomerate Mitsubishi, according to documents released Friday by WikiLeaks, which published a list of at least 35 targets.

"The list indicates that NSA spying on Japanese conglomerates, government officials, ministries and senior advisers extends back at least as far as the first administration of (current) Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, which lasted from September 2006 until September 2007," it said in a statement.
