WikiLeaks is a non-profit organisation that publishes secrets and leaked documents.

Founded in 2006, the non-profit journalistic organisation publishes in full on its website confidential documents, particularly government files, that have somehow been obtained by anonymous sources.

Significant releases have included diplomatic cables relating to US activities in Syria, documents about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and secret files about prisoners in the Guantanamo Bay detention centre.

Julian Assange is generally considered the founder and editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks.
