Germany's secret service has severely restricted cooperation with its U.S. partner the NSA in response to a scandal over their alleged joint spying on European officials and companies, media reported Thursday.The foreign intelligence agency BND this week stopped sharing Internet surveillance data with the U.S. National Security Agency, passing on only fax and phone intercepts, the reports said.However, such a rule had long been in place for fax and phone surveillance conducted by the BND for the NSA.The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union against the NSA and FBI, following disclosures about the vast surveillance programs in documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
