Top secret British papers found on train

June 15, 2008|From the Associated Press

LONDON — A second batch of secret government files has been found on a train, this time papers detailing Britain's efforts to tackle terrorism financing, the drug trade and money-laundering, a British newspaper said Saturday.

The Independent on Sunday, in a preview made available late Saturday, said the files were found on a London-bound train Wednesday, the day that classified documents on Al Qaeda and Iraq were handed to the British Broadcasting Corp.

The BBC said those documents, also left on a train and stamped "UK Top Secret," carried assessments of Al Qaeda's vulnerabilities and the capabilities of Iraq's security forces.

The newspaper said it had returned the latest files and would not publish any details.

It was not immediately clear where the documents came from or which government body was responsible for their security.
