[[Wikileaks]]' website is reportedly under attack from hackers as it prepares to release three million documents, described as "diplomatic dynamite", detailing communication between [[United States]] embassies. "We are currently under a mass [[w:Denial-of-service attack|distributed denial of service attack]]," the organisation said on its [[Twitter]] feed. The website, run by [[w:Julian Assange|Julian Assange]], retaliated by saying that even if their website goes down, several newspapers will publish the leaked files this evening.
The [[w:Presidency of Barack Obama|Obama administration]] wrote to Assange yesterday to warn him that "countless" lives would be put at risk should the documents be published. "We will not engage in a negotiation regarding the further release or dissemination of illegally obtained US government classified materials," the letter stated. ''[[Wikinews]]'' reported on Saturday that officials in [[Washington]] were contacting embassies around the world to warn diplomats of the leak.
Assange told reporters on Sunday: "The material that we are about to release covers essentially every major issue in every country in the world."
