London, Nov.29 (ANI): In what could discredit the US's role in the Middle East peace process, missions in Israel, Jordan, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Egypt were asked to gather biometric information 'on key Palestinian Authority and Hamas leaders and representatives, to include the young guard inside Gaza, the West Bank'.

According to disclosures made by the secret web site WikiLeaks, details of the US spying mission were sent to the CIA, the US Secret Service and the FBI under the heading 'collection requirements and tasking'.

The Daily Mail quoted American ambassador to Britain, Louis Susman, as saying that he 'condemned' the disclosures and that the US government was 'taking steps to prevent future security breaches'.

He also claimed the disclosures had 'the very real potential to harm innocent people" but insisted the cables 'should not be seen as representing US policy on their own'.

He said the leaks were 'harmful to the US and our interests' adding, 'However, I am confident that our uniquely productive relationship with the UK will remain close and strong, focused on promoting our shared objectives and values.

US State Department spokesman PJ Crowley said Mrs Clinton had warned leaders in Britain, France, Germany, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Afghanistan and China about the cables, revealed by investigators at the Wikileaks website.

Canada, Denmark, Norway and Poland had also been warned. (ANI)
