A former British diplomat and human rights activist has been detained under the country’s counterterrorism laws after declaring support for the people of Palestine and criticizing Israel’s atrocities against them.

Craig Murray was detained on Monday under the UK’s so-called Prevention of Terrorism Act after he returned from a trip to Iceland.

Before his arrest, he had taken part in a pro-Palestinian protest outside Iceland’s parliament building.
