Guardian editor: Some intelligence leaks should stay secret

The editor of The Guardian newspaper Alan Rusbridger, says there are limits to what he is prepared to publish regarding leaked intelligence documents, as some refer to operations which he says should remain 'rightfully, properly secret' and publishing them may endanger people.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Analysis programme, Mr Rusbridger told presenter David Aaronovitch how the paper weighs up whether or not to publish details revealed in leaked top-secret documents.
