The European Parliament has voted to suspend the sharing of financial data with the US, following allegations that citizens' data was spied on.
The allegation forms part of leaked documents from whistleblower Edward Snowden.
The vote is non-binding but illustrates MEPs' growing unease over how much data was shared with the US.
It comes a day after it was alleged that German Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone calls were monitored.
