    US government requests to Google for individuals' data reached a six-year high in the first half of 2017, the company says.

    A report published last week said the country had sought details about 48,902 accounts - 24% more than over the last six months of 2016.

    Apple reported a 62% jump in the number of user account requests from the US over the same period - 6,407 in total.

    Campaign group Privacy International predicted further "dramatic increases".

    The US outpaced the global rise in user accounts demanded from Google, which was 14% for the period.
