Australian police investigate WikiLeaks founder

Australian PM had recently condemned the leaks as reckless.



Canberra: Attorney-General Robert McClelland says police are investigating whether any Australian law has been broken by the latest leaking of confidential documents by online whistle-blower WikiLeaks.

McClelland told reporters on Monday he was not aware of a request from the United States to cancel WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange`s Australian passport. He says a range of options are under consideration by Australian government agencies in response to the latest disclosure of classified US material.

McClelland says there are "potentially a number of criminal laws" that could have been breached.
Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard last week condemned the planned leaks as reckless and potentially harmful to national security interests.
