Erekat accuses US, British citizens of leaking documents

Palestinian Authority chief negotiator Saeb Erekat on Wednesday said that a former CIA agent and a former EU official were responsible for leaking the "Palestine Papers." Erekat's comments came in an interview aired on the Al-Jazeera television network.
Erekat claimed US citizen Clayton Swisher and British citizen Alastair Crooke were responsible for leaking the documents to Al-Jazeera.
Swisher used to work in Erekat's office but left after six months and began working at Al-Jazeera.
Erekat said that he had demanded the US State Department investigate the leak.
