WikiLeaks to release CIA files

2010-08-25 09:59
Stockholm - WikiLeaks, the whistle-blowing website that published secret US military files on the war in Afghanistan last month, said it plans to release a document from the Central Intelligence Agency on Wednesday.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been accused by two women of sexual molestation in Sweden, where he has spent the past few weeks.

Authorities in the Nordic country are investigating the allegations and will soon decide whether to call Assange in for questioning.

WikiLeaks said in a short Twitter update that was dated late on Tuesday: "WikiLeaks to release CIA paper tomorrow."

Assange has said through Twitter that he is innocent of the accusations. He told al-Jazeera television on Sunday that he was warned by Australian intelligence of plans to discredit Wikileaks as it prepares to release more secret documents.

Swedish authorities had issued an arrest warrant for Assange, an Australian citizen, on suspicion of rape before abruptly dropping it on Saturday.
