Pentagon demands the return of leaked papers

Robert Winnett in Washington

THE Pentagon has demanded Wikileaks remove more than 70,000 classified documents published online, as well as return thousands more unpublished files about the Afghanistan war.

Military commanders have urged Wikileaks to return the unpublished documents, which contain sensitive details of Afghans who have assisted coalition forces. The Pentagon has disclosed that it has 80 people attempting to assess the damage that they could cause.

The Pentagon request comes amid increasing concern that the documents may be used by the Taliban to identify potential targets. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
