U.S. drug enforcement agency halts huge secret data program

WASHINGTON, Jan 16 (Reuters) – The U.S. Drug Enforcement
Administration has halted a secret, nearly 15-year program that
collected virtually all data on international calls between the
United States and certain countries, according to documents and
officials familiar with the matter.

The sweeping bulk DEA database program was stopped in
September 2013, shortly after elements were revealed by Reuters
and then The New York Times, according to a redacted court
filing made public on Thursday and U.S. officials.
