WikiLeaks blames Guardian for US cables leak

WikiLeaks said its archive of unredacted US State Department cables has been exposed in a security breach.



London: Anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks says that its massive archive of unredacted US State Department cables has been exposed in a security breach, and blamed a British newspaper.

In a 1,600-word-long editorial posted to the Internet early Thursday morning, WikiLeaks accused the Guardian newspaper`s investigative reporter David Leigh of divulging the password needed to decrypt the files in a book published earlier this year.

The Guardian and Leigh have both denied wrongdoing.

US officials have said that the disclosure of the entire unredacted archive could have potentially serious consequences for informants, activists and others quoted in the cables.

Copies of the files appeared to be circulating freely around the Web.
