London: A London-based advocacy group has filed a complaint over America`s international data dragnet, the latest in a growing number of lawsuits and legal actions relating to the sweeping surveillance program.

Privacy International filed today the complaint with the Investigatory Powers Tribunal, Britain`s interception watchdog, over allegations that the National Security Agency and its British counterpart GCHQ are spying on one another`s citizens and sharing the information without adequate legal oversight.
Both intelligence agencies have been shaken by the publication of leaked documents, which have revealed extensive details about their globe-spanning information-gathering effort.
In the United States, groups including the American Civil Liberties Union say they are suing. In Britain, rights group Liberty has also filed a complaint over the spying.
