Researchers have identified more people targeted with spyware made by the Israeli hacking company NSO Group.

On Monday, researchers from the internet watchdog Citizen Lab published a new report that detailed how hackers targeted a Catholic bishop, a priest, and two members of the political opposition in Togo—all people who had been vocal about government reform in the African country.

This is the latest in a long series of reports that allege NSO's customers use the company's surveillance technology to spy on dissidents, human rights activists, or political opponents of the government that purchased NSO's spyware. Similar alleged cases of abuse have been exposed in Spain, Morocco, Mexico, and the United Arab Emirates, among others.
