The European Parliament has voted to suspend the sharing of financial data with the US.
This follows recent allegations that European citizens' data was spied on by the US. The allegations are part of leaked documents released by Edward Snowden.
Although the vote is non-binding, it illustrates the growing doubts amongst MEPs over how much data was shared with the US.
The European Parliament voted to suspend its Terrorist Finance Tracking Program agreement with the US, in response to the alleged tapping of EU citizens' bank data held by the Belgian company SWIFT.
US authorities were able to access bank data for terror-related investigations, but leaked documents made public by whistleblower Edward Snowden allege that the global bank transfer network was the target of wider US surveillance.
This latest vote comes a day after it was alleged that Angela Merkel's phone calls were monitored.
