Julia Gillard explains leak which led to mob encounter

Help

The Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, has been forced to explain the actions of a staff member who leaked information which led to her being confronted by an angry mob last Thursday.

Ms Gillard and the opposition leader, Tony Abbott, had to be bundled to safety after being surrounded by a group of Aboriginal protesters.

The press secretary's resignation has now been accepted by Ms Gillard.
