I remember it, it was a big row this side of the pond.

...and the US authorities reacted with outrage citing sovereignity, too. This was a big row, too:

* Karl and Walter LaGrand, German citizens, were put to death in Arizona on February 24 and March 3, 1999 respectively. Germany is suing the US in the International Court of Justice at The Hague for denying the brothers consular access when they were arrested in 1982. They claim the US did not inform German authorities of the arrests until 1992, when all legal avenues had been exhausted.
