The US government today pleaded with website Wikileaks not to post any more classified documents about the Afghanistan war, saying national security was at risk.
White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said the leak of 90,000 secret military documents has already jeopardised the lives of Afghans working with the US and its allies.
He said the Taliban has declared it will comb the material for the names of people who have co-operated with international forces in Afghanistan.
Mr Gibbs said the release of another 15,000 documents reportedly still held by Wikileaks would do more damage.
He added that the White House “can do nothing but implore the person who has the documents not to post any more.”
