A computer with a series of numbers is seen in picture illustration taken in FrankfurtA bill to end spy agencies' bulk collection of Americans' telephone data advanced in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday, setting up a potential showdown over the program, which expires on June 1. The House Judiciary Committee voted 25-2 to approve the "USA Freedom Act," seeking to tighten control of a program publicly exposed two years ago by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. The bill would bar the bulk collection of Americans' telephone records under Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act and other intelligence authorities, and it would increase transparency and accountability in surveillance programs. Democratic President Barack Obama and many lawmakers want to retain the mass data-collection program as a national security tool, although they are open to changes.

Berlin-based Rocket has also had to contend with a setback in its recent move to invest in food delivery group Delivery Hero, a competitor to Foodpanda, a similar business Rocket controls that is active in 40 countries. Spiegel said Rocket had been unable to win a seat on Delivery Hero's supervisory board despite taking a 39 percent stake in the company.
