The British authorities forced the Guardian newspaper to destroy material leaked by Edward Snowden, its editor has revealed, calling it a "pointless" move that would not prevent further reporting on U.S. and British surveillance programs. In his column, Alan Rusbridger said the "bizarre" episode a month ago and the detention at London's Heathrow airport of the partner of a Guardian journalist showed press freedom was under threat in Britain. British prosecutors say they are charging four journalists from the Daily Mirror and Sun newspapers with bribing officials for information. The British government has defended the detention of a journalist's partner for nine hours at Heathrow Airport, saying authorities "have a duty to protect the public and our national security."Police used an anti-terrorism law to detain David Miranda, the partner of Guardian newspaper journalist Glenn Greenwald. Greenwald has published stories about U.S. and British surveillance programs based on documents leaked by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.
