Jerusalem: An Israeli newspaper says one of
its investigative reporters has returned to authorities the
classified documents he had received from a military
whistleblower.

The Haaretz daily reported today that Uri Blau agreed to
hand over the secret documents after his source waived her
confidentiality.

The source, Anat Kamm, has been under house arrest since
December for leaking documents she copied several years ago
when she was a soldier. She has been charged with aggravated
espionage.

Blau cited the material in a story accusing the military
of killing Palestinian militants in violation of an Israeli
Supreme Court ruling.

He has remained in London throughout the affair. Haaretz
says his lawyers are negotiating his return to Israel.
