WASHINGTON -- The U.S. National Security Agency, or NSA, on Sunday ended its controversial program of bulk collection of telephone data, exposed in 2013 by former employee turned whistle-blower Edward Snowden.

The NSA surveillance ended after a new law, the U.S.A. Freedom Act, enacted by President Barack Obama was passed in June and entered into effect early Sunday.

According to the law, the government will no longer be able to collect this information, and will have to ask companies instead in case of security concerns.
