LONDON - British police are seeking an "unprecedented" court order to force the newspaper that led the coverage of a phone-hacking scandal engulfing Rupert Murdoch's News Corp empire to reveal its sources, the paper said on Friday.

In a story on its website, the left-leaning Guardian said London's Metropolitan Police (MPS) was trying to use the Official Secrets Act to force two of its reporters to disclose their confidential sources.

The act is designed to protect classified information and is usually applied to matters of national security and espionage.
