The WikiLeaks website, which provoked a scandal by posting the Pentagon’s classified documents about US military action in Iraq and Afghanistan, says it will gather and make public documents from Russia, China and other countries.

This came in a statement by the site founder’s assistant Kristinn Hrafnsson in an interview with the Russian Kommersant daily.

He said the site management spent much time on preparing documents form Iraq and Afghanistan, adding that work would soon resume on information form other regions.

At present the Russian part of the site features no important documents.

The latest scandal around WikiLeaks was triggered by the publication of its Iraq war file offering shocking figures for civilian losses.
