Germany's lower house of parliament has joined the government in cutting ties with U.S. telecoms firm Verizon Communications Inc, in reaction to a scandal last year over U.S. government spying and allegations firms were handing over data. According to information disclosed by former U.S. intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, Washington conducted mass surveillance in Germany and even eavesdropped on Chancellor Angela Merkel's mobile phone. The Bundestag lower house of parliament plans to end its contract with Verizon "as soon as possible," a government spokesperson told reporters on Friday. It had been due to run until the end of the year.
