LONDON Oct 28 British Prime Minister David
Cameron said on Monday his government was likely to act to stop
newspapers publishing what he called damaging leaks from former
U.S. intelligence operative Edward Snowden unless they began to
behave more responsibly.
"If they (newspapers) don't demonstrate some social
responsibility it will be very difficult for government to stand
back and not to act," Cameron told parliament, saying Britain's
Guardian newspaper had "gone on" to print damaging material
after initially agreeing to destroy other sensitive data.
