Parliament probe into US snooping scandal.

The European Parliament has begun a special investigation into allegations that the US systematically spied on Europeans. MEPs on the civil-liberties committee yesterday (10 July) agreed to hold 12 extraordinary meetings about alleged spying by the National Security Agency, starting on 5 September.

The committee is scheduled to submit its findings before the end of the year.
