Wikileaks vows more Afghan war leaks
Whistleblower website WikiLeaks says it will soon release 15-thousand more secret files on the US-led war in Afghanistan, Press TV reported.
Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, said at a news conference in London that nearly 400,000 already released-classified documents on the Iraq war show compelling evidence of war crimes committed in the country.
Referring to the 109,000 violent deaths documented in Iraq since the start of the 2003 US-led invasion, Assange said 66,000 of them were civilians, thousands of which have never been reported before.
Meanwhile, human rights lawyer Phil Shiner called for an inquiry into Britain's role in the high number of civilian deaths in Iraq.
He said the UK defense ministry should stop covering up and be accountable for the deaths of all Iraqis killed by its forces.
Meanwhile the Pentagon has asked media organizations not to publish any classified documents released by Wikileaks.
In July, Wikileaks caused controversy after publishing 77,000 classified documents on the war in Afghanistan.
Bradley Manning, a US Army intelligence analyst, was arrested in connection with the leaks.
US Secretary of Defense Robert Gates later said the release put US interests at risk.
