A Swedish Internet company linked to file sharing hub The Pirate Bay says it's helping online whistle blower WikiLeaks release classified documents from servers located in a basement in the Stockholm suburb of Solna.

Mikael Viborg, the owner of the Web hosting company PRQ, on Friday showed The Associated Press the site the basement of a drab office building on the condition that the exact location was not revealed.

WikiLeaks has angered the White House by posting thousands of classified documents about U S operations in Afghanistan. The secretive site says it has servers in several countries but gives little detail.

Viborg said Swedish authorities know about the servers in Solna but have not tried to shut them down.
