LONDON — Britain moves its intelligence agents from active operations after Russia and China reportedly decrypted files stolen by NSA leaker Edward Snowden.

The country’s intelligence officials say more than one million classified files were opened, and the information could jeopardize the identities of American and British spies.

MI6 agents have been pulled out of hostile countries. There’s no word on if the United States has done the same.

Snowden is currently living in Russia where he was granted asylum.

The U.S. wants him to stand trial for espionage and theft of government property.
