The British Prime Minister David Cameron has said the government may act to stop newspaperspublishing further leaks from the fugitive US intelligence analyst Edward Snowden. Mr. Cameronwas speaking in parliament. Our British political correspondent Rob Watson has more.

This is the toughest line yet from the Prime Minister, David Cameron urged the Guardian andother newspapers to use what he called common sense and good judgements but warned thatif not, the government might have to step in.

I don't want to have to use injunctions or D notices or the other tougher measures. I think it'smuch better to appeal to the newspapers' sense of social responsibility. But if they don'tdemonstrate some social responsibility, it would be very difficult for government to stand backand not to act.

D notices are issued to newspaper editors and broadcasters requesting them not to publish orair stories on specific subjects for reasons of national security. Rob Watson.
