[efoods]The whistleblowing website Wikileaks has temporarily shut down because of a lack of funds.
The site, which has been a major irritant to governments and big businesses since it launched in 2007, says it cannot keep going without more public donations.
Wikileaks’ organisers announced the suspension in a statement on its site. “To concentrate on raising the funds necessary to keep us alive into 2010, we have reluctantly suspended all other operations, but will be back soon,” it says.
Pleading for more cash, it explained that publishing hundreds of thousands of previously secret documents each year costs money.
