    Both Europe and the USA want to protect their citizens' security and civil liberties, even though their legal systems differ greatly, US Attorney General Eric H. Holder told the Civil Liberties Committee on Tuesday. Replying to MEPs' remarks about the two sides' different ways of handling data protection, Mr Holder said "We must recognize that our systems protect civil liberties, including privacy, effectively, but in our own ways".
