Was BIJ bugged during Afghan War Logs investigation?

Editor of the Bureau of Investigative Journalism Iain Overton believes his organisation may have been bugged by the security services during its investigation into the Afghan War Logs.

He tells Journalism.co.uk: “We were conscious that we were probably being listened into by state security services, certainly my phone played very oddly during this process. We had a very high number of bizarre crashes on our computer system… I don’t think we were being paranoid.”
