On the Today programme yesterday Gita Sahgal, head of the gender unit at Amnesty's International secretariat, accused the charity of putting the human rights of Al-Qaeda terror suspects above those of their victims. She said that the charity's collaboration with Moazzam Begg, a former British inmate at Guantanamo Bay, "fundamentally damages" the organisation's reputation.

Widney Brown, senior director for international law and policy at Amnesty International, responds to Ms Sahgal's accusations.
