Wikileaks Founder Says Evidence Of War Crimes In Leaked Documents

LONDON (AP) - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says there appears to be evidence of war crimes in the thousands of pages of leaked U.S. military documents on the war in Afghanistan

The online whistle-blower WikiLeaks on Sunday posted some 91,000 U.S. military records of six years of the war, including unreported incidents of Afghan civilian killings and covert operations against Taliban figures.

Assange told reporters Monday "it is up to a court to decide really if something in the end is a crime. That said ... there does appear to be evidence of war crimes."

He said what's been reported so far has "only scratched the surface."

The White House, Britain and Pakistan have all condemned the documents' release.
