UK Prime Minister Cameron is also addressing claims he used offshore accounts. Reuters reports that authorities in El Salvador Friday raided offices of Mosack Fonseca, the law firm at the center of the incident, seizing records and computers.
How the leak was accomplished remains obscure, but observers see it as a bellwether. First, it's now possible to process rapidly millions of documents that would formerly have taken years to sift. Second, hacking to impugn reputations can be expected to increase.
