Military commanders have urged Wikileaks to return the unpublished documents which contain sensitive details of Afghans who have assisted coalition forces.
The Pentagon request comes amid increasing concern that the documents may be used by the Taliban to identify potential targets. However, a spokesman said he did not have a “high degree of confidence” that the information would be returned.
Wikileaks has also posted a massive file of password-protected documents called “insurance” on its website which cannot currently be read online. It is thought that this file may contain thousands of new documents which will be released should anyone connected to the site be arrested anywhere in the world.
