Counterterrorism officials from around the world-among them investigative magistrates Baltasar Garzon of Spain and Armando Spataro of Italy-called upon the United States government to share more information and evidence in the global fight against Islamist extremism. The officials, joined by law enforcement experts and journalists, gathered for the fourth annual conference on "Prosecuting Terrorism: The Global Challenge." In his keynote speech, Peter Clarke, the head of counterterrorism at Scotland Yard, said that more openness in terrorism trials is needed in order to boost the British public's trust in intelligence agencies as well as encourage support of policing and subsequent prosecutions.
