“I will underscore that this theft of US government information and its publication without regard for the consequences is deeply distressing,” Clinton said as she briefed reporters with Japan and South Korea’s top diplomats.

“The illegal publication of classified information poses real concerns and even potential damage to our friends and partners” worldwide, she warned.

In one of its most explosive leaks of US secrets so far, WikiLeaks yesterday divulged a list of key infrastructure sites around the world that, if attacked, could critically harm US security.
