Were Nato Kosovo documents leaked on the Web?
Rules of engagement
A Nato document leaked on the Net detailing the rules of engagement for soldiers serving in Kosovo is being examined by computer experts to verify its authenticity. Reports at the weekend claimed that the nine-page document somehow popped up at a London publishing company. Nato spokesman Jamie Shea is reported to be have said that if true, it would be "a matter of great concern to us". But a Nato spokesman told The Register this morning that even if the document proved to be genuine, it "doesn't leave us greatly concerned". "The information is not classified," he said. Although no one can be certain before all the checks are complete, it appears the document - genuine or not - is what all KFOR peacekeeping troops carry around with them in their top pockets, along with cigarettes, Hershey bars and ladies' nylons. Last week, it was reported that British security was compromised after two spooks were careless with their laptops. ® Related Stories Sneak thief steals state secrets in MI5 laptop Second spy loses laptop
