BRUSSELS  — The European Parliament on Thursday voted down a deal allowing the US access European bank transfers to track funds supporting terror groups.




EU lawmakers in Strasbourg, France voted 378-196 against the deal with 31 abstentions.




The parliament's president, Jerzy Buzek, said the assembly wants more safeguards for civil liberties and believes human rights has been compromised in the name of security.




The rejection forces the EU to renegotiate the deal.
