Strasbourg hosts European anti-terror summit

A two-day anti-terror European summit opens tomorrow in Strasbourg.

It will focus on the use of special investigation techniques in the fight against terrorism, discussing the application of modern investigation methods such as the interception of telephone and Internet communication, electronic surveillance and undercover operations.

Contributors, which include the UN Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED), the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the League of Arab States, will review how these techniques are regulated, so as to ensure the rule of law and the respect of human rights.
