The papers: Thursday's front pages

Media commentator Neil Wallis and Owen Jones, an Independent columnist, discuss the main stories from Thursday's papers for the BBC News Channel.

They begin with claims in both the Guardian and the i that the British government allowed US intelligence officers to store and analyse internet, phone and email data of British citizens.

The pair then look at the Times' lead story about Britons dying while fighting with a group linked to al-Qaeda in Syria, Russia's release of the Greenpeace campaigners - pictured on the front of the Independent - who'd been detained on charges of "hooliganism" at an oil rig, and the latest on the saga at Co-op Bank.
