More Snowden document leaks expected

THE Federal Government is preparing for more possible leaks of documents by former United States intelligence analyst Edward Snowden.

Attorney-General George Brandis, who has come under pressure over the leaks, told The Australian newspaper the leaks to date were the "most serious setback" for Western intelligence operations since the Second World War.

He said it would not be an exaggeration to say the leaks to date were "the most serious ever".

It is understood the government is expecting more possible leaks of documents by Snowden, after a series of damaging revelations in recent weeks.

The Australian also reported that between 15,000 and 20,000 documents were at risk of being leaked in what it described as a far-reaching security breach.
