EU wants to expand anti-terror data deal with US –

EU officials said Monday they are seeking to expand an anti-terror data sharing deal with the U.S. Treasury.

The European Commission wants to give U.S. anti-terror investigators access to European operation centers run by bank transfer consortium SWIFT, EU spokesman Michele Cercone said.

The consortium set up by member banks is responsible for the collection and relay of more than 11 million financial transactions daily between banks and other financial institutions worldwide.
