Brazil-based Guardian reporter Glenn Greenwald said Tuesday that he had received nearly 20,000 secret US government documents from intelligence leaker Edward Snowden.

Greenwald, an American who was among the first to release details of Washington's vast electronic surveillance program, gave no details of the content of the files as he testified before the Brazilian Senate's foreign relations committee.
