LONDON  — Iceland summoned the US ambassador to a meeting as top officials expressed concern over the US criminal investigation into WikiLeaks — a probe that has included a demand to see the private details of an Icelandic lawmaker's Twitter feed.

A court order unsealed this week revealed that American authorities had gone to court to seek data from Twitter about WikiLeaks, its associates, and its alleged source, Army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning.

Among those targeted was lawmaker Birgitta Jonsdottir, a one-time WikiLeaks collaborator also known for her work on Iceland's media initiative, which aims to turn the tiny North Atlantic nation into a free speech haven.
