The Labour Party has called for a review of the U.K. government's anti-terror powers and Amnesty International has issued a condemnation in the wake of the nine-hour detention of national-security journalist Glenn Greenwald's partner, David Miranda.
"David's detention was unlawful and inexcusable," said Amnesty International's Widney Brown. "He was detained under a law that violates any principle of fairness and his detention shows how the law can be abused for petty, vindictive reasons."
Meanwhile, shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper demanded an investigation into the laws that allowed security officials at Heathrow Airport to detain Miranda for nine hours and confiscate all of his electronics.
