G8 protesters held by police

BBC

Three coach loads of anti G8 protesters from Belfast were stopped at Stranraer and held by Scottish police for more than an hour.

Barbara Muldoon from the Anti-Racism Network said they were held under the Prevention of Terrorism Act. She said those on board were photographed and had their bags searched.

"We condemn the detentions and the flagrant abuse of our rights not to mention the heavily weighed PTA to carry it out," she said.
