Whistleblowing organisation WikiLeaks says it will soon publish 15,000 more secret Afghan war documents.

The group has already published some 77,000 US intelligence reports about the war in Afghanistan, and just released almost 400,000 alleged secret US documents about the Iraq war.

WikiLeaks has said the 15,000 additional Afghan files were held back because of their sensitive content.

Kristinn Hrafnsson of WikiLeaks told reporters Saturday in London that the documents had now been fully vetted for release and will be published shortly.

He said the Iraq documents have been edited to conceal people's names and "contain no information that could be harmful to individuals."
