Wikileaks to publish leaked Macron campaign emails

WikiLeaks has said it is publishing around 20,000 emails allegedly stolen from French President Emmanuel Macron's campaign on its website in a searchable form.

The emails caused a stir when they were initially published just two days before France's May 7 presidential run-off, which pitted Mr Macron against French far-right leader Marine Le Pen.

But unlike the leaks that rattled the 2016 American presidential race, the French email leak had little if any impact.

Mr Macron still comfortably beat Ms Le Pen.

The messages have since been picked over by the French press, although WikiLeaks' move may draw new attention to them.

The head of France's cyber security agency ANSSI said in June there was no evidence tying the hacking of the Macron campaign emails to any particular actor, saying "it could be anyone".
