WASHINGTON — A new report based on documents provided by Edward J. Snowden has identified five American Muslims, including the leader of a civil-rights group, as having been subjected to surveillance by the National Security Agency.

The disclosure of what were described as specific domestic surveillance targets by The Intercept, published by First Look, was a rare glimpse into some of the most closely held secrets by counterespionage and terrorism investigators. The article raised questions about the basis for the domestic spying, even as it was condemned by the government as irresponsible and damaging to national security.

The report was based on what it described as a spreadsheet of email addresses said to have been monitored between 2002 and 2008, and was co-written by Glenn Greenwald, a primary recipient of the trove of documents leaked by Mr. Snowden, the former N.S.A. contractor.

The document is titled “F.I.S.A. Recap,” suggesting that the eavesdropping took place under the process authorized by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Among those identified by First Look as having been subjected to surveillance were Hooshang Amirahmadi, a Rutgers University professor who is the president of the American Iranian Council, a public policy group that works on diplomatic issues regarding relations with Iran, and Nihad Awad, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations or C.A.I.R., a Muslim civil rights organization.
