Chinese hackers 'steal Australian spy HQ blueprints'


It is alleged that hackers in China have stolen the blueprints to Australia's new $600 million intelligence headquarters.

The Australia Broadcasting Corporation says that details of the building's floor plan and the security systems have been illegally accessed from China.

Foreign Minister Bob Carr says the report will not hit ties with Beijing, but did not comment directly on the claims.

The BBC's Nick Bryant reports from Sydney.
