Guardian leaks 'could help terrorists', says Clegg

Nick Clegg and his Liberal Democrat colleague Vince Cable appear at odds about the Guardian's disclosure of secret surveillance by the US and British authorities.

Mr Cable said the newspaper performed a "very considerable public service" by publishing details of documents leaked by Edward Snowden.

But Mr Clegg reaffirmed his belief that publishing the information could "help terrorists".
