JERUSALEM —

Israel's prime minister has angrily cut short a key gathering of top security officials, accusing an unnamed participant of leaking details of the sensitive meeting to the media.

Netanyahu says the leak occurred after a daylong meeting of his Security Cabinet on Tuesday. The forum was briefed by top security officials about various regional threats.

When the group resumed its discussions Wednesday, Netanyahu sent everyone home. He said Israeli security requires the ability to hold confidential meetings, and whoever spoke to the media violated "the most basic trust."

Netanyahu did not identify any suspects or what information was leaked.

But the Yediot Ahronot daily, citing unnamed participants, said in a report Wednesday that Israeli intelligence organizations disagreed over Israel's ability to damage Iran's suspect nuclear program in a military strike.
