This month the CIA station chief in Berlin was expelled as the spying row between the US and Germany escalated.

The diplomatic row between the two countries is a result of revelations of the scope of United States' global surveillance operations.

And the sentiment that America should not spy on international citizens or world leaders is widespread, according to a new survey from the Pew Research Center.

More than 80% of people surveyed around the world said that it is unacceptable for the US to monitor foreign citizens.

That along with another controversial policy - the use of drone strikes - may have damaged the country's reputation for protecting civil liberties.

The BBC's Ashley Semler looks at what the poll found.
