The Wikileaks website has uploaded more than 90,000 classified documents on the war in Afghanistan.

The leaked documents suggest that the real number of civilian deaths in the country has been severely underreported.

They also claim that Pakistan is secretly supporting the Taliban in Afghanistan and that a covert unit of US special forces is assigned to hunt down - capture or kill - senior Taliban leaders, without trial.
