WASHINGTON — The CIA's former top clandestine officer and others will not be charged in the destruction of CIA videotapes of interrogations of suspected terrorists, the US Justice Department announced Tuesday.

Another part of the criminal investigation is continuing into whether CIA interrogators went beyond the legal guidance given them on treatment of the suspects during questioning, a Justice Department official said. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because that part of the probe is still under way.
