Britain warns WikiLeaks release could put 'lives at risk'
Britain condemned Sunday the planned release of classified US documents by whistle-blower website WikiLeaks, claiming it "may put lives at risk."
"We condemn any unauthorised release of this classified information, just as we condemn leaks of classified material in the UK," a Foreign Office statement said, as WikiLeaks prepared to publish classified US documents.
"They can damage national security, are not in the national interest and, as the US have said, may put lives at risk."
