The NSA has secretly broken into the main communications links that connect Yahoo and Google data centers around the world, a newspaper reported, citing documents obtained from former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

A secret accounting dated on Jan 9, 2013, indicates that NSA sends millions of records every day from Yahoo and Google internal networks to data warehouses at the agency's Fort Meade, Maryland, headquarters, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday.

In the last 30 days, field collectors had processed and sent back more than 180 million new records - ranging from "metadata," which indicates who sends or receives e-mails and when, to content such as text, audio and video, the Post reported.
