Reports: NSA broke privacy rules repeatedly

US security agency's audit found 2,776 incidents of unauthorised communications collection, newspaper says.

The US National Security Agency (NSA) overstepped its legal authority thousands of times each year since 2008, the Washington Post newspaper has reported citing an internal audit.

The NSA audit, dated May 2012 that was provided to the newspaper by Edward Snowden, the former NSA whistleblower, earlier this summer, counted 2,776 incidents in the preceding 12 months of unauthorized collection, storage, access to or distribution of legally protected communications.
