(NEWSER) – In what Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald labels a serious abuse of power, British authorities detained his partner for nine hours under a counterterrorism law at London's Heathrow airport. David Miranda, a Brazilian national, had possessions including his laptop seized and was questioned extensively about theGuardian's reporting of Edward Snowden's NSA leaks, says Greenwald. "They never asked him about a single question at all about terrorism or anything relating to a terrorist organization," Greenwald tells the BBC. “This is obviously a serious, radical escalation of what they are doing. He is my partner. He is not even a journalist.”
